A Pregnant Male Canon

Tuesday 9th December 2014

I’m pregnant!!

Nothing to be ashamed of really. Except I’m a 49 year old man and a Vicar.

But then the season of Advent, the four Advent Calendar weeks before Christmas is a time of pregnancy. Or should I use the words a time of expectancy.

Children are expectant and grown-ups get caught up in that excitement.

Christian ministers are expectant in who they may see at Christmas and those who will need supported during the season.

What will you expect and how can you heighten your awareness of others in need and the sheer beauty of some of the moments of Christmas. Be expectant and your visions of joy will be multiplied.

Rev’d Canon Simon Moor, Vicar of Huddersfield Parish Church
