It seems as though there are an increasing number of people willing to explore faith and/or spirituality these days so I thought - why not have a faith corner!
Christmas is coming and thoughts turn to peace on earth and goodwill etc. Do you ever wonder about the old Bethlehem birth story? Is it true or just for school nativity plays?
Most of us love to sing the traditional carols at Christmas, even if we don't give much thought to the words."O come let us adore Him, Christ The Lord.." etc etc.
is Christmas just for the children or is there a deeper significance?
What do you think?

Do you think it should be a faith corner or a spirituality corner? Faith has probably always been a hard thing to come by, but I imagine almost everybody wonders about life's meaning and whether there is more to life than just pleasure and pain. Just a thought :-)

Sometimes I think we all loose faith once in a while, especially when life is not going too well as is quite often the case, and whilst I don't necessarily think there is a god, I'd like to think that I have a "connection" to something or other.  My life tends to revolve around animals and for all my animals that have departed, I really have to feel that I am still connected to them in some way, so that becomes spiritual.

As for Christmas being just for children, no I do not thnink it should all be about them - it should be for everyone.

There was certainly something or some-one looking out for me this morning as 2 of my dogs nearly got run over in Station Road, but for the quick thinking of the drivers they remained in one piece. 

My huge thanks to the drivers and the invisible one for keeping them with me today.
