Pause for Thought

Your town churches will be celebrating Christmass with you in their hearts; it’s what churches do.

Blessings on those who attend, yes, but asking God for blessings on all who live in the communities around them too. 
The angels appeared to the shepherds - those working and on the margins of society - and said this new born child is for you. 
The kings were guided to Bethlehem to show that this child is for the foreigner and the stranger too. Not just history, but reality too. You, me, stranger, in Worksop churches and your homes, blessings available from the New Born. Happy New Year.
