Uploaded 19/11/2015

A RESOURCE FOR ADVENT: HEARING HAPPENING HOPING

Hearing, Happening, Hoping is Scripture based resource which helps us to reflect on the Gospel text for each of the four Sundays of Advent.   It uses a three step process to help us to do this. First we are helped to come ‘face to face’ with the Gospel text and really hear what it is saying. After the Hearing, the Happening asks where do we see this living Word today in the circumstances of our lives and in the world around us. Finally, we bring our hearing of the Word and our reflection to prayer in the Hoping step of the process.
