A very blowy December day was brightened by Father Stephen's sermon.  He was remembering how we learnt to cross the road many years ago, look, right, look left, look right again etc.  Not sure what the up-to-date version of this is, but it moved to The Green Cross Code - Stop, Look, Listen.  He feels this is good advice for our spiritual life, especially in Advent when we anticipate the coming of our Lord.

STOP rushing around
LOOK at where we are and take stock of our spiritual life
LISTEN to what God is saying to us, and this may be via other people.  Our interior life can only grow in silence.

We hear a lot from the prophet Isaiah at this time of year.  Prophets may have predicted the future - but more importantly were interpreting the signs of the time.  Isaiah was confident at listening for the genuine word of God.  Prophets were often despised as people did not like what they were saying.

John the Baptist paid for speaking out against Herod.

Stop.  Look.  Listen.  We may not like what we hear, but that is what happens when we place ourselves in God's hands.  Life is wonderful but full of danger.  We have to slow down and take stock.  Listen to God.

The service was followed by a coffee morning with a sale of sweets organised and made by the Sunday School, proceeds to a charity of their choosing. The sweets did look very inviting!
