A child is born


The angel said: 'I bring you good news of great joy.  
Today a Saviour has been born; he is Christ the Lord.'   
Luke 2 10-11

It's Christmas Day!  And I sincerely wish you and those you love - wherever you are and whatever you believe - a very joyful and peaceful day, full of blessings.

My photo shows the crib scene at my church - St Peter's, Shipley.  I am not sure of its history or exactly how old it is but it has been brought out each Christmas for as long as I can remember. I like the old pottery figures, the donkey and the ox lying in the straw, the shepherd boy playing his pipe.  I am always especially touched by the figure of Mary, kneeling in silent prayer before her son.  

Thanks be to God.

  5. It's a beautiful crib scene. Most ones I've seen have the three men from the East rather than the shepherds.
