Sunday is the first in Advent. I know this because I am on a preaching team (at Anne Widdecombe's brother's church!) and had a quick look at the lectionary for inspiration (didn't use it cos they were all about hellfire and I couldn't quite bring myself to talk about people/ God arriving on clouds). But the advent season kind of sums things up just now. Waiting for some really good and exciting stuff to happen.
But still waiting.
On Sunday I'm going to talk about John Baptist and how he kept himself amused whilst waiting (I'm not going to treat it as flippantly as that). I just am beginning to be aware that I am living in my own sermon!
I might also try to make a Blue Peter advent crown!
Or maybe not!
