Pausing, Reflection

Was it a good Christmas?


People that I haven’t seen for a while keep asking me this.  Another responded today by showing  groujp of us a video. Former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams spoke to that question in an address in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London UK earlier this past December.  Williams started by talking about the words of the Christmas carols we sing so enthusiastically – especially the second and third verses which are full of quite amazing ideas that pass most of us by.  You can watch the address and the questions that he answered following the lecture here.

In closing, Williams gave a really important reminder.  Who have we ignored in the past year – and how could we make that better – with a phone call, a letter, letting something from the past go?  That’s a simple way to get the season to end well.
