Today has been all about people- and a bit of yummy food along the way. Which is a pretty good metaphor for Advent.
Clerical collar and Christmas jumper - one of those strange combinations that perhaps expresses more than first appears.
Today was my care home chaplaincy day, followed by a festive lunch with a group from church and then a visit to someone from our vulnerable adults group who is in hospital. All of life, then, in the space of a few hours. The overtly sacred and the seemingly silly. The prayers at bedsides and the telling of terrible cracker jokes. And along the way, some table fellowship.
A reminder that life goes on, that Advent is simulatneously special and ordinary - and that that is all OK.
