The new series of morning bell for the beginning of Advent is emerging from our musing on the wisdom of the great Jewish prophet Isaiah (and his co-writers) – and specifically from the readings set for each day of this season. These poetic insights from the 8th century BC continue to resonate for us now, and particularly so in Advent – as they look ahead to coming salvation.
The images are all from a retreat that we were involved in leading earlier this month at Scargill House in North Yorkshire, home to the brilliant Scargill Movement. Make a visit there if you can!
One of the motifs that Isaiah uses is that of a ‘fruitful field’. May Advent prove to be a fruitful field for you…
Grace and peace to you at the beginning of this new Church year, Ian & Gail.
