I hope you had a joyful and restful Christmas. Church is back on Sunday 2nd, and we hit the ground running.
It is the first week of the Night Shelter, and at Church we will be celebrating the Epiphany – the strange and wonderful story of the journey of the Magi, and reflect on the gifts that we each bring to the party that is the Kingdom of God. If you have a moment – listen to T.S. Elliot read his poem on the theme.
And then the following week we will begin our series for the term – looking at the Gospel of St John, many people’s favourite of the the Gospel accounts, tracing the story all the way to Easter.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
It is going to be another busy term, so pray now in these last few days of quiet for energy and dedication for all of us looking forward to a new year.
