How do we prepare for relatives arriving this Christmas?
With all the restrictions of the past two years, people are pretty keen to travel and see family that they may not have seen for some time.
Advent means arrival, and the Advent season traditionally starts in the last week of November. In this edition of Family Worship, Duncan Barlow explores how we can prepare for Christmas by looking at the example of Mary and John the Baptist ahead of Christ’s birth.
Duncan Barlow is the minister of both the Laidley and Hatton Vale Uniting Churches in the Lockyer Valley. Along with his wife Alison and their two daughters, he moved to Laidley in October 2018 to serve as the pastor of Laidley and Hatton Vale Uniting Churches. Duncan and Alison grew up in Brisbane but have worked in a variety of locations including Sydney and Indonesia.
Duncan regards it as a great privilege to share God’s word and help people to understand and apply it to their lives. He also enjoys connecting with people, walking beside them in their life journey.
