As the year slithers to its damp and dark ending, I think of the promise of Jesus born among us. The liturgical year has such power to bring the Christian stories into the context of our everyday lives. All the more so this year, when I am dependent upon music and the ministry of others.
John Bell's haunting song says so much.
Not the powerful, not the privileged,
not the famous in the land,
but the no-ones and the needy
were the first to hold God's hand.
The pedigree. John Bell
