A Pause in Advent 1 - Hope
100 years ago amidst the fighting a remarkable thing happened - guns were put down and enemies came together, to play football, to share together. For a brief interlude the fighting was forgotten and both sides were as one. For a brief moment there was Hope.
On this first Sunday in Advent we should remember that Hope, the Hope that the Christ child brings to the world.
Today there is still fighting, still wars, but we can still have Hope. Tearfund have produced resources for you to hold your own Silent Night Carol Service, to remember that night so long ago and also to remember the conflicts still going on today. You can find the information here
