When God became small

It is the end of a busy term at St James's School and it was good to welcome everyone in to the church this morning for our end of term Christmas service.

We sang some favourite new and old carols, and what a great sight it was to see the whole school singing 'It was on a starry night' with great gusto AND doing the actions.

Two children read the story of the nativity from Luke 2. Paul led the service, and I spoke about how the 'great big God' who made the universe became so small, and so vulnerable, when he was born in the baby. The little Lord Jesus was asleep in the hay. A boy was born, king of all the world, and all the angels sang for him. The bells of heaven rang for him.

Now its time for a well deserved rest for staff and pupils. A very happy Christmas everyone.
