Advent is the season of waiting and contemplation, when we prepare for the joyful coming of Christ at Christmas. But waiting is not
always chosen or joyful, and can bring times of great spiritual testing – through illness, old age, or the struggles and frustrations
of everyday life. Margaret Whipp will explore the challenges of life’s waiting times and the skills they demand, drawing on vivid
metaphors of wine-making, wilderness, winter and the womb, and how the paradoxical grace of patience can point to the kindness of the
God who wait for us.
