  • Pause for Thought

    From Rev Rob Gillion, Rector of Holy Trinity Church and St Saviours.

    The nights are really drawing in, for some it’s been a very difficult couple of weeks with the floods and storms. Yet we have seen scenes of bravery, courage and heroism by friends and neighbours, even passing strangers who have rescued others from the floods. Care and compassion that’s the Christmas spirit, and preparation can now begin for real.

    Today we’re opening are third door of the advent calendar. There are twenty four windows to open including Christmas Eve. I have sent a calendar to my Godson and bought one for myself and I’ve brought one for Noah and Eli to share. Each window reveals a picture and a bible verse. The first window was a candle and a verse from Isaiah ‘the people who walk in darkness have seen a great light’. This is the first week of advent, the real preparation for Christmas.

    There are of course so many people suffering in the darkness of their lives, and the advent calendar in its very first window suggests there is hope advent hope – a light at the end of the tunnel. Of course the light shines when we shine.

    The next window speaks of peace. With all that is going on across the world, it’s a gift we need to foster and encourage.

    The third window is an angel offering a message of good news. The message is that love will overcome any darkness in the world. I believe the best definition of love is found in the scriptures ‘God is love and those who live in love live in God and God lives in them’. So for me the way to bring light into the world is a partnership between ourselves and God.

    So every day in Advent there is a window of surprise.

    I’m not averse to the advent calendar’s with chocolate in them either, but as we eat them let’s remember to love our neighbour as ourselves and share the gifts we have been given. Love. Joy and Peace and chocolate!!
