3rd Sunday of Advent, 11 Dec 2016

From the Dean’s Desk

This season of Advent is one that calls us to prepare for and to await the coming of Jesus at Christmas.  It urges us to ensure that we make a place for God during this time of preparation, so that God remains with us throughout the entire year and not just at Christmas. It can be  difficult for us to give time to God in the busyness of our lives and commitments, but it is  essential that we do, otherwise our lives and our destinies are indeed at a loss.

1st Sunday of Advent, 27 Nov 2016

From the Dean’s Desk

We begin today a new season of the Church’s liturgical year.  Advent is a time of preparation for the birth of the Prince of Peace at Christmas.  Unfortunately, we celebrate this season  during a fairly busy period of the year, and if we are not careful, Advent can come and go  without much attention from us.  We can find ourselves planning for all types of events, from holidays, through to the Christmas lunch menu and the plethora of gifts that have to be bought for an ever increasing list of people.  This year we have four full weeks of Advent, which  presents us with a challenge to make time for preparing for the Lord’s coming at Christmas.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

From the Dean’s Desk

We come today to the final Sunday of the Church’s liturgical year.  It is always celebrated as Christ the King.  This title may be a little misleading, as we normally associate royalty with power, wealth, territory, prestige and the like.  Jesus presents himself as a different king.  Since news of his birth was made known to the people of Israel, he had been announced as the infant king of the Jews. This unsettled the monarchy of the day, believing Jesus, who was a baby at that stage to eventually grow into an adult who will be a threat to their position.  The normal thing to do was to make sure that the baby never reached adulthood.  So from his infancy Jesus was seen as a threat to the present power structure.
