Advent is yet to come upon us but the commercial Christmas marathon is already in good stride.
An exciting time for many of us but for others it can prove a difficult time. Those in debt, alone, grieving a loved one or living with ill health often look upon the forthcoming time of joy, peace, love and hope with some dread. However Christ is with us wherever we go, walking with us on stormy waters giving us strength and hope, that through a life lived through him and with him and in him will lead us in his peace. Matthew Burnell, St Paul’s Church, Manton.
