Starting to keep this Blog up-to-date again. Starting a New Year again. At 10.30 a.m. on Sunday 5th January we will be keeping up with the Three Wise Men in St Michael's. These are the figures in the huge Christmas Crib there - their faces reflect an old tradition that they represent the whole world so one looks more western, one more middle-eastern and one more far-eastern.

We have been getting ready for tomorrow. Some members of the Youth Group have helped prepare a version of a sixteenth century picture in church. We have bought thirty metres of ribbon to form a river flowing from the church’s east window. This will all pick up what the church is due to hear on this particular Sunday.

... or so it seems to many people. We'll be exploring the way the generosity and forgiveness of God seems to go way beyond anything we might think of as sensible. What does that mean for us? We'll be meeting in our winter venue (St Michael's) for the last time until October. Next month (7th April) we will begin to meet in our summer venue (St Nicolas').

We had fun yesterday with the idea of Christmas presents including golf, frankinsence and myrrh, but it is interesting to report back on just two things. We asked 'What does Gold mean to you?'. More people mentioned their wedding rings in their answer than mentioned wealth. 'What was the best Christmas present you ever had?', was one of the other questions we asked. More than a quarter of the answers written up were about a new member of the family or about a family getting together.
