Advent isn’t just the run up to Christmas, it isn’t just advent calendars and christmas shopping. It is an important season of it own. Advent means Arrival and it is a time when we focus on the future “thy kingdom come”.
Every year at COTC we undertake an advent project. Something creative and hope-filled. This year for our Advent project we are stepping up further.
It is called Just Cause. And we are asking each of you to take on a cause for the year ahead.
We all have causes we care about. It may be something you have a long term connection to, it may be a quiet conviction you have never acted on. It may be something lots of people are passionate about. You may be a voice crying in the wilderness.
What is your Just Cause? If you sit quietly what are the injustices that you deeply care about. How are the ways that you would like to see “thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”. Prayerfully ask God, what is the thing that is on my heart.
Learn to do good;
rescue the oppressed,
defend the orphan,
plead for the widow.
