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 shares God’s loving purpose in sending Jesus into our world. ‘This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.’ (1 John 4:9-10) May you know the love God has for you in Jesus. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to be in touch!
