Couples for Christ (CFC) had its first ever Advent-Giving event on November 30. CFC decided to bring members of its various family ministries together to get a better understanding and appreciation of the season of Advent.
The day began with an opening prayer led by our National Director, Mark Poon Tip, followed by a short talk on Advent by spiritual director Bishop Emeritus Malcolm Galt. He likened our mood for this session to that of waiting in a doctor’s office. For example, there is waiting in silence, anxiousness and joyfulness.
This was followed by Advent wreath making while the little children were engaged in the fun of bouncy castle and face painting.
