#AdventBookClub: Day 11

Claiming True Peace: “Keep your eyes on the Prince of Peace” – not spending his time chasing power, doing what others want of him … spends time with the poor & weak – speaking forgiveness & encouragement. POWERFUL in itself…

Blessings Abound: Colossians 3:12-15

Fruits of the spirit in a different form: “compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience”?

Love, peace, unity – are these the things we are exhibiting to each other, to the world…? We can take no control of what others do, but as (digital or otherwise) disciples we can but seek to think about our own interactions & behaviours …

Prayer: Seek harmony in our lives as the angels did when announcing Christ’s birth … thinking back to last week’s sermon – “we are it” – as also outlined in Martin Saunders recent post… are we seeking harmony when we “announce” how amazing life with God is…

Advent Action: Hmmm, liturgical music expressing calm serenity – I’m not sure that Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas…” which Spotify chose to play at that time was exactly on the money! Pops off to YouTube

I’ll listen to that whilst I go and look at Pam’s post.
