Pause in Advent is coming up


The 'Pause in Advent' series is usually hosted over at Tracing Rainbows , but this year Ang has going to have a busy time in December, so I am hosting it here.

What is it?

A series of reflection on aspects of  this Advent/Christmas season, posted on each of the Sundays in Advent by some of the bloggers who follow Ang's blog. The idea is that one just takes a moment out of all the busy preparations and concerns coming in from all directions and has time to be still, and take a breath, and have a little think.

Search on this blog, or over at Tracing Rainbows, for 'pause' to find posts from earlier years if you want to see more. 

If you would like to join with posting reflection on your blog, please leave a comment below with a link to your blog and I will somehow create a sidebar to hold all the links.  

Oh, and last Sunday was the last Sunday before Advent, often called 'Stir up Sunday', but now celebrated at 'Christ the King'. Whatever you call it, Advent starts this coming Sunday, 28th November (but the chocolates will have to wait until the Wednesday after that!)


  1. Yes, I preached and led our "Reign of Christ" service yesterday. That left me so tired that the making of Christmas pudding had to wait until today.

  2. Preaching can be exhausting - all that adrenaline. I've subscribed to our church's 'mass pudding stir-up' event, and will have one delivered in due course!

  3. I will do my best to post, but this Christmas is going to be rather busy I suspect...

  4. Hello!
    I will try to join if I can.. Thank you for hosting.x

  5. I will join in as and when I am able. Thank you for taking this over from our busy friend.
