Thanks to all who came to our carol services. On 13th December, we met at the village Memorial Institute and shared with the WI. About 50 villagers came along and I spoke on the Magi's gifts to Christ. The following Sunday we had Eric Platt from Nelson in the morning, and a candlelit service in the evening, supported by about fifty people including work colleagues and family members. I spoke on the three reactions to Christ's birth- the hatred of Herod, the indifference of the scribes and worship of the wise men. Everyone stopped for supper afterwards.
