We choose hope

An extract from a sermon by the Dean on the First Sunday of Advent:


As we get close to the end of 2020 and as we begin a new church year, what does KEEP AWAKE mean for us?


For sure it means we choose to reject fear, despair and complacency. We are never going to accept the ways things have been as good enough.


We choose not to allow the past to be the best predictor of the future, our future.


We choose to be awake and not asleep.


We choose to make our future and not simply accept what life serves up.


We choose to say YES to God and to work with the Spirit of Life to rebuild, reshape and recreate a broken, scorched and virus-ridden world.


We choose to love into the future with our eyes wide open, with courage, with compassion and with hope.


Marana tha … our Lord, come.



The full text of this sermon, together with video, is available online.
