Create your own Theresa May advent Calendar December 1, 2016

Posted by P, J, or J in Uncategorized.

It’s the first of December (or was when I wrote this) and news has recently broken that British Christians should not be afraid to talk about their faith (at least “in the same way you might talk about sport, hobbies and family life”).

I won’t comment on the politics of this and obviously different parts of the British press are reporting this in slightly different ways. Less obviously I haven’t read them all but, if you like, you can use these links to create your own advent calendar and read one a day.

I’ve not found 24 mentions of the story yet so perhaps on the other days you could simply talk to people, or read about and perhaps pray for Christians in other countries where persecution is a little more intense. There’s lots of information on OpenDoorsUK.org (which would be a good web address for an advent calendar but is actually about praying for the persecuted church.)
