Fifth Sunday Before Advent

You realise Christmas is getting close when the Collects change from 'Trinity x' or 'xth Sunday After Trinity' and become the 'xth Sunday Before Advent'. This morning we used the Collect (or special prayer) for the Fifth before Advent, which is now designated as Bible Sunday. Not too long ago Bible Sunday was in Advent - either the first or second Sunday, I can't remember.

So by my reckoning, we have 8 more Sundays between now and Christmas (given that this Sunday is almost finished). Time marches on and before we know it, we'll be out carol singing and putting up the tree.

That's all for tonight.
