I Can Revise 2

Advent begins at the end of this week.  The links between I can revise and Advent are …………

How about Advent being a time of preparation and that we mark Advent with a calendar and good revision needs organisation to be effective?

Here’s a 2 minute guide to Advent as a reminder: (you might want to turn the music down or off!)


So, how are you going to make Advent special this year?

* How about using a thoughtful (not just a chocolate-full) Advent calendar, either a bought one or an online one?

* How about using some special Bible readings or prayers during Advent?  I’ve signed up for AdventWord, http://aco.org/adventword but there are many good sites.

* If you would like to take a slightly different path, then try https://www.biblesociety.org.uk/get-involved/adventchallenge/

Back to the link with revision, if you don’t do anything then Advent and/or learning will pass you by.

You may have used this collect (special prayer) in church:


Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people;

that they, richly bearing the fruit of good works,

may by you be richly rewarded; through Jesus Christ, who is alive with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God now and for ever.

Amen.

We are singing this Taize song at the Christmas services.  Here’s an instrumental version but with the English words displayed. It’s good to give us some moments to plan our Advent.

 



Here’s another take on a spiritual Advent.
