And a partridge in a pear tree.

December 26, 2013

Yesterday (Christmas Day) we had upwards of 60 people for our morning service, which is no mean feat considering my first year there were only 35-40, and that was the highest level the congregation had been since I started there!

I was also part of a trio of ministers in the Connexion (at least just 3 to my knowledge) who wore splendid Christmas pudding Christmas jumpers! We celebrated a message of Good News in Christmas that is more than puddings, parties and presents; and is in fact about person, promise and peace!

There was hilarity and solemnity in proper measure and the presence of God was palpable in the warmth and fellowship of worship.

And the best part of all?

That as we shared food as a family later on the (tea)light, given out at the service earlier in the day, shone and gave us warmth as we met around a table laden with deliciousness!

I hope you all had a very happy and wonder-full day.

Love, R. x
