Advent-squareAdvent is a wonderfully counter-cultral Christian tradition. Just as everyone around is grearing up their lives for Christmas, planning, buying, worrying, travelling, partying, Christians for centuries have taken the season of Advent to heart and deliberately chosen to take time out to reflect, watch and wait. If, like many of us, you need help to do this, then how about following the daily readings on Richard’s blog and using five minutes to pray and be still…?

It’s worth a try!

Check out the blog here each day and journey with Richard as he tries to let God shape his preparations for Christmas once again.
