Waiting and Preparing

The Advent season is upon us, beginning with our Advent assembly this Friday.   We too often equate Advent with Christmas, when in fact we need to distinctly separate the time of patient waiting and preparation for our Saviour, from the joy when we can fully receive Him on Christmas day.  The school will be busy with classroom activities, preparations for the concert, service projects, celebrations, and general merriment; so much activity in a time of quiet, prayer-filled reflection.  Each Sunday of Advent provides a different focus to help centre us and keep us focused on the message of the Advent season. We look forward to welcoming this beautiful message with wide-open hearts.

Yours in faith,

Maureen Moorehead
