Just another weblog

Getting ready….

Had a great evening finding all my Christmas files full of readings and stories and poems and prayers. Loads of A4 pages all over the floor and cant wait to start being with children and having fun telling the Christmas story in fun ways.

This Sunday at Great Paxton our Christingle will start at 3pm so that by the time we light the candles it will be nearly dark.

At Little Paxton on Sunday starting at 5pm the ARAGON SINGERS will be giving us a Christmas Concert with traditionla carols and some of the lovely ” Manchester Carols ” pieces.

Meanwhile, here is a forest of Christmas trees  at a  garden centre. Each  waiting for some nice family to come along and take them home for a few days of festive celebration.

The Christmas Life

Bring in a tree, a young Norwegian spruce,
Bring hyacinths that rooted in the cold.
Bring winter jasmine as its buds unfold –
Bring the Christmas life into this house.

Bring red and green and gold, bring things that shine,
Bring candlesticks and music, food and wine.
Bring in your memories of Christmas past.
Bring in your tears for all that you have lost.

Bring in the shepherd boy, the ox and ass,
Bring in the stillness of an icy night,
Bring in a birth, of hope and love and light.
Bring the Christmas life into this house.
