Advent: Real and lasting change by Ian Mobsby

On Sunday 16th Dec 2012 on the 3rd Sunday of Advent, Ian Mobsby explores the theme of ‘Advent and real and lasting change’. In the Gospel of Luke 3:7-18 Ian explores the importance of how we live and sincerity of heart called for by John the Baptist. The climax of this text seems to be a call to loving kindness in the way we live as the first call to the Kingdom of God, which is modelled through economic justice. This links to a conversation in the new film The Hobbit:

In a striking phrase the Dwarf leader asks Gandolf the Grey how people face and live with the current darkness and evil – to which he responds – I find that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay … small acts of kindness and love.
