Christmas Eve Round-up

Here's a Christmas Eve Round-up. Pour a glass of wine. Enjoy.

Firstly, just for fun, here are Christmas Greetings to the people of 'Great Britain' from The Simpsons, posted today by The Church Sofa here. People of Cornish ethnic origin may especially enjoy this.

From the Simpsons' kitchen, you might like to move to a field somewhere near Bethlehem. I love the imaginative tale of a shepherd about burnt porridge, a terrifying angel and a baby in Thinking Anglican's post today 'Burnt Porridge'.

There's a moving article by Archbishop Rowan Williams published in today's Times newspaper. If you don't want to pay to get behind the Times pay wall, you can read it for free here 'In Congo or in Croydon, God is there for us.'

Finally, from 'Good in Parts' an inspiring and short Christmas message 'Light Looked Down and Beheld Darkness'. 


  1. Thanks Stuart and a Merry Christmas to you too. Just seen your post about midnight Christmas services cancelled in Iraq for fear of attack - sobering. Christians in Iraq and other places where they face real persecution need our prayers and support.

  2. They really do Nancy; it's so easy to forget them with all the festivities.....

  3. Dear Nancy,
    I hope you have a very Merry Xmas.

  4. Thank you Jane and a very Merry Christmas to you too.
