Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For darkness shall cover the earth,
And thick darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will arise upon you,
And his glory will appear over you. (Isaiah 60: 1-2)
These verses from Isaiah are very fitting both for us during the season of Advent and for our nation at this time of upheaval. Advent is a time of hope and anticipation as we look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus as one of us at Christmas, and also further ahead to his coming again with his kingdom.
As we pray this month let’s pray that the Lord’s light and glory will shine: in us as individuals, in us as a church community in our witness to Isleworth, in our nation and our political life.
We warmly invite you to join us in our Christmas Celebrations later this month. Please find all the details below!
