People look East and sing to-day.
Love the Guest is on His way

This Quiet Day explores themes for Advent from the writings of the Greek Fathers:

1: Perfect Longing – the longing love which inspires us to sing, ‘Come, thou long-expected Jesus’, as we yearn for the arrival of the Saviour.

2: Inner Watchfulness – the spiritual attentiveness which drives us to sing, ‘Hark a herald voice is calling’, as we open our ears and mouths to welcome the King.

3: Stillness of Heart – the tranquillity of soul which leads us to sing, ‘Creator of the Stars of Night’, as we greet the coming of the Prince of Peace.

Sunset over waterDr Jim Wellington a former Anglican priest and now part of the Orthodox Church is an experienced retreat leader in over 45 years of priestly ministry.
