At this the darkest time of the year, I wish you light: the light to live by, the Life-light that blazes out of the darkness, that the darkness can’t put out.

I hope that you will know the power and vulnerability of a tiny baby, and that you will find the mystery and the miraculous in the busyness of the life around you.

The Census at Bethlehem, Pieter Bruegel the Elder

If you’re following all your usual traditions or if this season is uncharted and filled with surprises, I hope that you can enjoy those around the table with you. Take a moment, take a deep breath, look around and savour, if even only the smallest thing. Let there be light!

Have a peaceful and happy Christmas everyone!
