Second Wednesday of Advent – What Does Copenhagen Have to Do with Jerusalem

by Christine Sine

There is much that I want to share this morning as we race through the second week of Advent.  There are so many resources I want to make you aware of and so many Advent reflections I want to post that I hope you will forgive me if this is a day of many posts.

First as I listened to this reflection by Malcolm Duncan this morning I was reminded that in this season of Advent we cannot detach ourselves from the concerns of the world and at the heart of that should be our concerns about climate change and what we should be doing to bring glimpses of God’s new world of beauty and abundance into reality now.  The hope of Advent is our longing for a world in which everything is restored and made whole and that is the central concern of the meeting in Copenhagen.

Duncan says of himself: I am from Rathcoole in Netwonabbey, County Antrim, Northern Ireland and I am married to Debbie, a Nurse Practtioner. We have four children – two of each. I am passionate about God and about people and am happiest when I am helping people understand that they matter and that they are worth something. I love to get involved in community and work best as part of a team and am passionate about Christian faith that makes a difference in the world at every level.
