The Celebration of Advent
As we approach the season of Advent, we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus. In a world where the commercial side of Christmas starts earlier each year, the idea of waiting and preparing becomes a greater challenge than ever before. Perhaps this year more than ever it is time to reflect on this wonderful happening, and ask ourselves if we can truly celebrate Christmas without preparing throughout Advent. In this piece from the archives, Eileen Good put this question to Dean Dermot Dunne of Christ Church Cathedral.
