Seasonal Greetings: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany

On whatever day you read this, through this period of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany celebrations, may your joys be many, disappointments be few, and sorrows be seasoned with hope and love.

Posting over the next few weeks will be light - probably just pointing to significant Anglican news, should anything emerge - as fits the season. Readers have other things to do (well, perhaps some stuck in snow in Europe and North America have little to do!), and this writer needs to write some other things when not soaking up the sun :)

Best wishes, and thanks for reading through 2010.

Peter, Christmas blessings to you and yours. We in Northern IReland have been experiencing what our media term 'Arctic conditions' for the last week - think about us as you enjoy the sun!

Now that's Spanish I can understand! Thank you, David :)

We only think about Burke's Corner's Arctic plight fleetingly - too hard to resist gloating in the sun :)

Σὺ δέ, ὦ ἄνθρωπε τοῦ Θεοῦ, ταῦτα φεῦγε· δίωκε δὲ δικαιοσύνην, εὐσέβειαν, πίστιν, ἀγάπην, ὑπομονήν, πρᾳότητα. ἀγωνίζου τὸν καλὸν ἀγῶνα τῆς πίστεως· ἐπιλαβοῦ τῆς αἰωνίου ζωῆς, εἰς ἣν ἐκλήθης καὶ ὡμολόγησας τὴν καλὴν ὁμολογίαν ἐνώπιον πολλῶν μαρτύρων.

Refresh yourself in the summer sun - then come back ready for the fight of faith! Remember: the days are getting shorter now...

Hi Peter! Our new British vicar (Simon Winn) was over last night and was telling me you had a blog that he was following - and so you do! It was good to read the family news. Love to you and Teresa - Corinna

I look forward to meeting your new vicar one day.
Best wishes
