Second Week of Advent: Saturday

two Catrionas.jpegI've just had a lovely day meeting children and carers who had completed our Christmas Sheep Trail and who joined in our 'Get in the Picture' event.  Lots of children colouring pictures, adults munching warm mince pies (donated by Greggs), lots of dressing up and lots of good conversations.

Most people who came in were not connected with any church, yet they all loved the event and thanked us for organising it.  Many had photos taken.  More than a few were interested in other events we have coming up.

So, nothing especially profound today, just some gratitude for the work God does...


Did you slip in God,

Wrapped against the winter's cold, clutching your answer sheet, in chubby fingers?

Did you sit at a table, God,

Supping tea and enjoying a warm mince pie (donated by the baker on the corner) and a few minutes stillness?

Did you hand out prizes, God,

Bringing a smile to the face of a child with s simple box of chocolate tree decorations (albeit telling your story!)

Did you mop up spills, take photographs, make tea, dress actors?

Did you cross our threshold unnoticed?

And did we welcome you, as you, always, welcome us?


God of Christmas, thank you for a day of love lived, faith expressed, and hope renewed



  • Marvellous, Catriona, and oh yes, God was there.
