Hush and hear the love song

The Annunciation, Henry Ossawa Tanner

The Annunciation, Henry Ossawa Tanner

And man, at war with man, hears not
    The love song which they bring; – 
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
    And hear the angels sing!
It came upon the midnight clear (excerpt)


There are a number of themes within Advent such as those of longing, waiting, starting again, joy.    

Of these themes which do we need to listen to in particular? What in yourself are you invited to deeply inhabit this season and the strains of love that accompany them?


On each of the following (Advent) Sundays a reflection will be posted, with a hope that this gives an opportunity to stop for a while, to hush our minds and receive Jesus coming towards us.

Click on the images below for each Advent Sunday’s reflection (Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 16, Dec 23 are the days reflections are released)
