112915 – In the days of Advent–Standing on the Threshold

A secret entrance to another world has long been fertile ground for great writers.
Alice enters a backwards world through a looking glass.
Harry Potter walks through a brick wall at 9 ¾ Kings Cross Station to board the train to Hogwarts.
In C.S. Lewis’s classic tale, little Lucy Pevensie accidentally discovers the world of Narnia while playing hide and seek in the back of an old wardrobe.
In the midst of everyday life, another world is waiting, unnoticed by passersby.
Advent opens up a world which we most often pass by, in a rush to be somewhere else. We miss the chance to see what is close at hand. Listen to the opening sermon of this year’s Advent in Narnia series.
