Thanks for checking out Advent on the Avenues! This year at St Matts we’re reading John’s first letter (1 John) during the season of Advent. As an eyewitness to Jesus, John writes about the life he brings from God. ‘The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us… God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son’ (1 John 1:2, 5:11 ) May you know God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus this Christmas season. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to get in touch!
