We would like to share this reflection with you in the hope that it inspires you in some way.



Advent Reflection


Our spirit, soul or inner self needs nourishment and time.


We often are just too busy to give it the time it deserves.


Advent is a journey that priorities time for ourselves and gives us time to ask

what the message of Christmas can mean for us.


Where would we like Jesus to be born in our lives this Christmas?


What part of our journey at the moment needs healing and priority?


If we rush through the next few weeks it won't happen.


Advent puts the brakes gently on, allowing us to slow down enough

to make it happen.
