Happy Christmas to one and all! I’m sorry for being a bit light on the blogging front this year, but thank you everyone for engaging.
I’ve just returned from our candlelit carols service, and we looked at the difference between Santa and Jesus.
At the end of the service we had this reading, which I’ll close with (as I did last year):
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (John 1:9-13)
