Hope, not fear
An extract from the Dean's sermon for Advent Sunday:
We create safe places to explore grace, rather than define the boundaries to keep people out.
Our doors are open. Our hearts are open. Our minds are open.
Such a mindset is the ground of hope: for us and for others.
We want to multiply hope, to see it spread beyond us to others. We want to see hope go viral. We do not seek to control it, define it, limit it, or restrict it. The more people who have some real hope the better our world will be: less fearful, more compassionate, more generous and less violent.
