Advent 2018

Mary TaylorREGIONAL Minister the Revd Mary Taylor writes:- 
"Our God is a generous God. Everything we have and enjoy is through God’s loving generosity. This isn’t just an abstract idea. When it comes to Christmas we see most clearly that God’s love is put into action for our salvation and God’s generosity is put into action through sending Jesus. Christmas is God rolling up sleeves and putting on work-boots to generously share life with us all.
 

"Our focus this Advent will be on how God’s generosity calls us all to be generous people. That might make us think first about giving to charity but that isn’t where we want to focus. We want to take a look at how different people give themselves to be the best in some very different ways.
 
"Over the four weeks of Advent 2018 we will hear some stories about these generous people and their special gift. They all take something we might see as everyday or not especially spiritual and turn it into something generous and full of God’s love.
 
"We are also looking for Generous Heroes in our churches! All the way through Advent we’d love you to look for the generosity stories that you know and share them with us. Who do you know who turns the everyday into a gift in the name of Jesus. How about nominating your Generous Hero from church and community? Send us a photo and story (with their permission) and we will share it with the YBA family."
