What Are You Waiting For?
(PDF download)

A service for Advent

by Dave Broom

Digital download: During Advent we wait, not for turkey and tinsel, mass consumerism and waste … but for the coming of Jesus Christ and for justice to be done: for the homeless to be sheltered, for war to be abolished, for the destruction of the environment to end.

We wait for God. But God also waits for us, and asks: ‘Well, what are you going to do about it all then? How are you, Christ’s disciples, going to make a difference in the world?’ …

What will you do differently as a result of the past year?

How will you help the Kingdom come?
