An Invitation to Wait

Advent is a season of preparation and waiting – an invitation for us to reconsider with fresh eyes the birth of Christ. During our lives, we may experience times of waiting. Waiting for a visitor, for important letters or emails, news from the doctor or for the moment when a baby takes their first breath. Sometimes these times are filled with anxiety, frustration, panic and when the arrival takes longer than anticipated, we start to question the outcome.
