I remember a few difficult Christmases in the past, although most of my Christmases have been peaceful and cosy. But it is so much harder, if things are hard at Christmas, than on another day. I was reminded of this recently as I was on a train with...

Our spiritual life is sometimes like that. We have to slow things down, work on putting our ways of devotion, living a Christian life and praying into place. It takes time and effort but when done we have upgraded our prayer road and hopefully we...
Motorway.
It's always been a subject of some bemusement to me that although many tourists come to see the sights that you'd expect them to see (Big Ben, alas now covered in scaffolding, St Paul's, the big museums etc) many tourists actually come to London for...
Harrods at Christmas
I began to understand the term “the dead of winter” as we trudged over decaying leaves and battered undergrowth. The branches were bare for the most part and apart from a few berries, on which some birds were feeding, there was little life to be...

One of the facts they verified was the claim that there are more foodbanks than branches of Macdonalds. Apparently this is true, there really are. The need for foodbanks in our society is a shame upon us all. But I find some comfort in knowing that...

A bauble hanging off a Christmas tree
For the last couple of years it has been leaned a bit awkwardly next to a wall but wasn't hung up properly, partly because it had a hole in the back that wouldn't fit any of the hooks we had. Then, having moved house recently, I found to my surprise...

Maybe you were involved in the school Nativity play. My ability as an actor was never fully recognised since the height of my acting career was fifteenth shepherd (in field –sitting). I never actually got to Bethlehem, never stood with my mates...
An Advent calendar in chocolate.
She greets me with more enthusiasm than anyone else in my life, putting her paws on my shoulders and bathing my face. She plays hard, chasing squirrels in the garden and pouncing at lasers from which she rescues her bones, carrying them away from...
