Shellrock Weekly News - 8th December

Dear Friends

Our two services today reflect the hope of Advent,

Firstly, at Café Church, we will be building a Jesse Tree.  The name comes from Jesus’s ancestry.  It is recorded that he is of King David’s line, and David’s father was Jesse.

The decoration on the tree remind us of the history of the Hebrews as recorded in the Bible, beginning with the Creation, through Adam, Noah Moses, the prophets, and others in between, until we reach Mary, John the Baptist and Jesus himself.  The candles on the Advent Ring also represent the Hebrew Fathers, the Prophets, John the Baptist and Mary, ending with the central white candle (Jesus) being lit on Christmas Day.

It is good to remind ourselves of the history from whence comes our faith.  Anglicanism may be relatively recent but the tenets upon which we hang our faith are ancient, formed before the very beginning of time. Although the interpretation of the faith may have changed over the generations, God was the same, is the same and always will be the same – our Rock upon which we build our lives.

The Christingle this afternoon will be bringing our faith into the present, explaining the fullness of Christ as we experience him in the world today, also discovering why he is our Saviour. His whole life and ministry was directed towards God the Father, towards Love and Hope for the survival of the human race, and to live in peace with each other which is, indeed, the message of Christmas

There are two more Sundays of Advent before Christmas day itself.  Let us keep a good Advent, remembering why we believe, what has been, and why we hope for the world to become a place of peace springing from the Love God has shown to his people
My Advent love to you all,

Sue
