Around 3:30 in the afternoon the sun is behind the clouds and it is time to put the lights on. The Christmas service invitation leaflets have been printed and are due for distribution this week. Very soon the shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child will start their journeys to the needy children in various parts of the world. The Christmas cards for our link missionaries are almost ready to post. The food collection is coming along nicely. Next week it is Advent and we will be lighting candles and learning about their symbolism - if all goes to plan.
It is nearly Christmas - all the signs are there - not to mention the shops and the TV - I'd better start thinking about starting Christmas shopping.
Today Margaret spoke on a difficult passage - Colosseans 2:16-23, and reminded us of the dangers of religion being more important to us than faith.
