  • Pause For Thought

    From Rev Rob Gillion, Rector of Holy Trinity Church.

    Everyday we wake up ought to be regarded as a new beginning. Each day will have some flash of light even in a dark place - but you need to look for it and expect it.

    In our church calendar we really have begun a new year - yesterday was advent Sunday the beginning of the church's year and the beginning of the Christmas season. The theme is darkness to light which is counter to the reality as the days get shorter and the nights longer. But always there is something to brighten our day.

    Last week I visited a dear friend Christine who is in a hospice and struggling. However her spirit lights up her room.

    As we talked and prayed together and she affirmed her faith in Christ she said that her present experience has been an enriching one. She has received e mails and cards, sharing such love for her -her family has rallied around her. Then she said something that will stay with me for a long time.

    She said 'they are loving me into life'

    In the darkness of her situation she recognises and glimpses the light of love. That for me is my advent message. As I light each advent candle as I open the first doors of my advent calendar I will endeavour to let in the light of God's love.
