Contrasts




Hotfooting it from a hospital bedside
to a coach load of excited school children
on their way to the pantomime
(Oh no I wasn't - Oh yes I was!)
Singing carols sedately with seniors
then ramping up the tempo
for a Christmas jingle rock
Writing funeral services
and Nativity plays
Reflecting on the donkey and the angel
Being caught up in the mystery
and the romance
the sanitised version of the Incarnation
and the darker reality that needs a PG certification
Planning menus
and food bank donations
Bearing the grief
and spreading the joy
All in a days work
The work of Advent
