The photo shows a bowl of red baubles left over from last Sunday, and the paper-chain prayers we made this Sunday.
This morning's nativity in rhyme was great, with very small children miming part sof the story, teens as narrators and adults filling in where needed. It was rather wonderful to have an Iranian Joseph and a Nigerian-Scottish Mary, and very lovely when Mary's little brother followed the couple to Bethlehem.
There was some great singing of music old and new, some real laughter and lots of appropriate 'ah' moments.
It was a good morning, and I am, as always on such occasions, so proud of 'my' people.
