Have your say

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has announced that he will be writing an online Advent Calendar during the month of December.

The Archbishop will be writing a series of daily reflections on his website from December 1 up until Christmas Day.

The announcement follows the success of his 2010 online Advent Calendar which enabled people to follow the Archbishop’s personal journey towards Christmas.

The archbishop said: “Christmas is, for me, the greatest story ever told. God’s wonderful gift of love is for each and every one of us.

“Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, and I hope that people will join me so we can share the expectation and excitement of Advent together.”

The online Advent Calendar for 2011 will be available at
