    Advent Day, ‘Behold, I am coming soon’

    Jesus is coming soon, and Advent is the season when we think about his coming. We marvel at his first coming, humbling himself to become our Servant Saviour, and we prepare for his second coming in glory to be our judge. We need to take time and make space for Christ to come to us now, as we open ourselves to his presence and listen to his voice. The day will comprise input for reflection, Biblical readings and poems, and times of silence when we allow God to speak to us and challenge us as individuals. We close the day with an informal Eucharist together.

    The Revd Dr Rodney Holder is former Course Director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion at St Edmund’s College, Cambridge, where he is a Bye Fellow.

(Lion Hudson, 2013), and his most recent book is Longing, Waiting, Believing: Reflections for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany (BRF, September 2014).
