So it’s down to the struggle with the Christmas sermon. At first glance it looks fairly easy but I think its fairly difficult. Christmas sort of defines its own agenda and there is so much stuff going on that it’s hard to add anything significant from the pulpit. And there are always lots of people who come to church at Christmas and not at other times .. which creates its own pressures. I’ll see how I get on tomorrow – I’ve only had a year to work on it.
