#Advent20

Been enjoying the company of others around the country on Brian Draper‘s #Advent20 series – and the poem below got me thinking about the pressures on so many on the Christmas season.. being away or abroad for several Christmas’s can make you think differently… (hence e-card, rather than paper cards) And if, as weeks go round, in the dark of the moon my spirit darkens and goes out, and soft strange gloom pervades my movements Continue Reading →

#AdventBookClub: Day 7: Sharing Voices

King’s College – the beautiful ‘9 Lessons and Carols‘ – I never knew that it was created to help soldiers, unable to equate the brutality they had seen on the front in the First World War – with what they saw in Church – see the story at the centre of the Christian faith (rather than organisations/Christians – we so often get in the way of Jesus I think!).

Jordan has portrayed the central characters with intense honesty; two young people caught Continue Reading →
