Bible reading for Advent

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish... At that time, they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

Luke 21 v25-28

Action for Advent

  1. Pray for victims of modern slavery – that their suffering would be alleviated, and the perpetrators of the crime stopped and brought to justice.
  2. Pray for the work of The Clewer Initiative, as it seeks to raise awareness nationally and develop a new victim support programme for Dioceses.
  3. Pray for all who seek to help and serve those trapped in modern slavery.
