A series of short visual meditations for these difficult times. There are 11 videos where we reflect on images with accompanying questions to spark and encourage your own thoughts.
The possibility of this trip was first raised in October 2017, almost a year ago! The fact that this pilgrimage is finally materialising and we are literally about to jet off, we have to give thanks to God. Fitting that this year is also Landings Singapore 10th anniversary, with Grace and Gratitude, we pilgrims areContinue reading “And… we are off!!!”
These rainbows to me mirror the Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. The themes nicely sum up to me what Christ’s coming is all about; it gives me great comfort, and is what I can hold on to as pillars in my life.
We desire to walk with one another this Advent, sharing hope, peace, joy and love of the season. Landings will share a series of what this personally means to some of us.

“When my friend first talked to me about joining Landings, I said no. It didn’t fit into my work schedule.
