Far from home - an advent calendar

We had a guest preacher this morning - ex-congregation member, Terry Gibson who spoke of running into a 90+ year old in Prague(!) watching English football who grew up in Macclesfield, went to our church. Waiting for his father to reurn from WWI, he put his father's picture in his advent calendar on Christmas day - he would be home for Christmas - spoke of his hope and despair until his Dad was there - minus half a leg - on their return from church that morning.

Hope, expectation and fears for Advent
