Light in the Dark

The child in me has been caught up with memories of reading, re-reading and re-reading again of Shirley Hughes’ ‘Lucy and Tom’s Christmas’. At 5 am, Lucy and Tom rouse their parents – ‘Christmas has really begun’.

But Christmas is really a festival of night – of light in the darkness – of stars against the dark sky – of warmth against the winter cold. As we welcome the birth of Jesus, some warmth creeps even around cold hearts .. Emmanuel, God with us – no longer alone.
