Getting to do my talk on joy (I only really have one) with loads of Lord of the Rings, John 1, Isaiah 25 and Revelation 21. We have a God who came, comes to us in the mess of this life and will come again. A God who has given us a beautiful world to enjoy and point us to our Maker. We have light in the dark and our Emmanuel has come. Just about held it together.
The the wonder and chaos of our all age Christmas service, prayers brought to the manger and the joy of working in a team.
Home to sloe gin and tonic and Masterchef.
