I will be posting here occasionally…. but I am also to be found here: http://eccentricvicarandlurchers.blogspot.co.uk/
I know it is a bit confusing and complex. Then that is quite like me….
I have just posted this in the other place
I love Advent. I like Christmas.
I love the rhythm of a season that embraces both the fast and a rich sense of feast. With its focus perhaps on patriarchs, prophets, the Baptist, Mary of Nazareth and of course Jesus it is a sort of engagement with our family tree. I have a bag by my bed of photos my mum had saved over the years. There are some of me that I would rather no one else saw. But there are others of family and friends that I might have long since forgotten.
Advent affords us the opportunity to celebrate our family, warts and all.
There is also the option of explore Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell, which usually are given a body swerve in favour of other themes.
They are topics that give us pause for thought… and before Christmas…. that might be a good thing.
That is why I will enjoy deeply wailing and singing longer songs with tunes that are a tad sober. They will help me enjoy December 25th when it comes.
