On Sunday the 5th of December 'The Edge' lead SoulFire, which is a youth event that's on the first Sunday of every month.
The theme of the evening was Advent and how to prepare for it. Over the course of the evening we looked the things that people commonly do in preparation for Christmas, at what the true meaning of Christmas is, and how we, as Christians can prepare for it.
The Edge team acted out a sketch called Away with the Manger, which illustrated how we can crowd up Christmas with unimportant things and forget about Jesus' birth and his reason for coming to earth. They also did a sketch on what things are 'important' for Christmas, where a Christian and a non-Christian pulled various objects out of bags which symbolised what they felt was important to have for Christmas.
The evening went very well and everyone played their parts brilliantly! Well done guys!
