I heard a statistic today that whilst partywear and mince pie sales have plummeted, the Christmas Lights sales have increased by 238% this year. People are lighting up their homes, inside and out, like never before. Why? Because in this time of uncertainty over health, finances, jobs we cling to light bringing us hope. As Christians we know that hope lies with the birth of the Christ child. Jesus is coming, the light of the world is about to break into the Creation story, our story, bringing peace and hope and love. Let’s celebrate with our own lights.
