Light in the darkness - A sermon for a Carol Service
It’s that time of year again. The lights are on in town and cards are beginning to be sent and received. This weekend we received our first Christmas cards of this year and believe you me, most of them have quite idyllic pictures. They warm the cockles of our hearts and believe you me, there are times when that is just what we need.
And yet, we know that neither the first Christmas or that of 2007 are quite as idyllic as we would like to think.
