In the beginning… Sunday 24 December

Today is the Fourth Sunday of Advent and the word for reflection is ‘Covenant’. What does covenant mean to you as we turn from Advent to Christmas on this day which is both the Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve.

The Collect for this Sunday is: Heavenly Father, who chose the Virgin Mary, full of grace, to be the mother of our Lord and Saviour: now fill us with your grace, that we in all things may embrace your will and with her rejoice in your salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
