Christmas Eve

Well, I have just had a bit of a doze after lunch! Was up at 6.30am to get ready for this morning's three services. It was nice to have a completely full church for our Carol Service at 10.00am. Normally we have our traditional style Carol Service in the evening, but, for various local reasons, we were not able to do that this year. It seemd to work, though. In two hours, we have our Chirstingle and Crib Service followed by the midnight Eucharist. The midnight is my favourite service of the year althoughI always feel that my sermon never quite manages to meet the occasion.

Tonight, I am going to begin with Time magazine's choice of me as its Person of the Year. It is the first time I have won this award, and I am, not surprisingly, quite pleased to have won it. I will be telling the congregation all about it, and then I'll tell them why I don't really deserve it.

I hope you are all having a good Christmas!
