Sunday 27th December

Luke 2:36-38


I'm not wanting to jump Christmas. It's too big to jump anyway but this coming Sunday is the first Sunday after and we'll still be singing carols and we'll still be in the place where we can hear more clearly than at most other times the songs of incarnations that we have been singing right through Lent.


The final song is Anna's, an old prophetess who lives in the temple and with Simeon, has been waiting for the moment God promised for a redeemer to come and she sees that in Jesus, so she sings.


God keeps the promise but now we have to have different kinds of eyes and different kinds of ears because leading up to Christmas if feels a whole lot easier to hear. Now in the days after, the atmosphere is thinner and the light colder, and it is easier to hold disappointment against God as we might be doing with the presents we have received. Now is the time to believe even more.


But we aren't there... yet: Light Festival, Watchnight and Christmas Day first.
