Light UP for Peace!

 

“If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

Mother Teresa

Today is the Second Sunday of Advent and a time for patience, reflection and hopefully a time for a little peace as we prepare to welcome the arrival of Jesus into our lives – once more.

Here in Merryworth Town and as our excited young mice open the eighth door of their Advent Calendar – Curate Bertram waits in the cozy Chancel of St M’s Parish Church.

But as the ferocious December winds rattle through the wooden rafters of this old church – he is waiting for Mary to arrive to light our SECOND Advent Candle.

Although Mary was VERY excited to have been invited to light the first AND second Advent Candles – she is VERY forgetful and even though she will often struggle to remember the simplest things and becomes upset and confused very easily – the mice of Merryworth ALWAYS try to help Mary live her best life.

But with NO sign of Mary and with a promised visit to the ‘Merryworth Mouselings’ to chat with the young mice about the importance of caring for our lovely town – Curate Bertram potters over to the Advent Wreath with the candle snuffer.

As the sky grows ever darker and the wind continues to howl – Curate Bertram lights our FIRST Advent Candle of hope and then the SECOND Advent Candle which reminds us of the importance of peacefulness.

And with a VERY busy few weeks of Advent planned – Curate Bertram remains hopeful that he will be able to enjoy a peaceful afternoon or two with a read of his new book!

Of Mice, Tee AND Tea!
