Archbishop of Yorks' advent calendar

The Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu will start his own online advent calendar today.

He will post 24 message on how we might prepare for Christmas.

This is the fourth year running that the Archbishop has offered daily reflections in the build up to Christmas.

The Archbishop said: "Every day from 1 December until Christmas Eve, a brief reflection will be added online about our Advent journey, preparing the way for Jesus in our lives. Come and journey with me!"
