Advent, Christmas and then Epiphany can often leave us with a child- like understanding of Christ. The challenge over the next two months is to let Christ grow in our hearts so that we are ready to understand and fully engage with the Lenten experience and then the passion in all its maturity.
Growth is often seen in numerical terms, however, spiritual growth is sometimes difficult to discern.
It is perhaps in the little encounters, the personal prayer life ,the quiet conversation, the lighting of a cherished candle where growth is taking place.
Here is a thought with a useful check list to help us grow together, not just as individuals, but as a loving, kind and caring congregation in the heart of our great city.
