Christmas thoughts.

I’m not noted for my sensitivity but, this year, I am very aware of people who are not having a Merry Christmas. Those who, because of loss or illness are finding Christmas extra difficult need our understanding and those who are in war torn countries make one feel how unfair it is for us to be celebrating while they are suffering.I’m not sure about doe-eyed people pleading for charity money on TV but I do like to buy charity Christmas cards, especially as there is such a great selection in the church in town.Maybe we should all look at ourselves and wonder if we are pretending to be having fun, rather than giving joy. It will always be a time to celebrate birth and treat children but maybe it is also a time to reflect on how humans can use religion as an excuse for inhuman behaviour.
