I'd be interested to know how you would talk about advent to my friend Leigh. Her 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia on Friday and started chemo yesterday. How do I talk about the coming of the light of the world to someone who's child has a 35% chance of dying of her illness? How do I present Jesus as a source of hope to her as her baby loses her hair and vomits her guts out? How do I support her when she asks "why us?". Somehow at advent this is all more urgent somehow. Any answers much appreciated!
