A candle being lit while another candle burns beside it

The second week of Advent traditionally focuses on the prophets - those who have spoken out, often from the margins, and brought an often uncomfortable message of what needed to change.

This week we consider the messengers whose voices are often marginalised and consider the truth they speak to us.


Dear God

Help me to share his message of good news to all.

Thank you for my talents and abilities
