Advent Calling?

Responding to God?

We heard of John the Baptist yesterday, sometimes seen as a prophet of the old order.

His calling is two fold. Turn to God and be prepared to be forgiven.

How often is the first heard but not the second.

To be forgiven is freeing – the bonds that crowd us in when we hold onto guilt and harm – when let go of because we are forgiven allow us to unlock  such potential.

Repent and be forgiven is not just about God, but also of neighbour.

If forgiven by a neighbour the potential is just as great. 

 A good (forgiving) neighbour?
