John describes Jesus in terms of life, light, grace, truth and we shared ideas of how we might describe Jesus to friends.
We also considered what helps us to “ponder” about the mystery of God – music, art, reading and for many of us, walking in the beauty of the countryside or gardening – the wonder of God’s creation. Advent provides a time to halt the rush of life and reflect on what the birth of Christ means to us – a route to God, the invisible made visible, God’s nature made plain.
Finally we thought about the image of Christ as light and how it helps us to face the dark times of life.
All in all, a lively and interesting evening!
