4 Kinds of Christmas

Four approaches to Christmas – which one are you?

What approach do you take to Christmas? Are you a Scrooge, a Shopper, a Santa or…a Stable-visitor?

Scrooge is happy in his woe, the shopper spend spend spends – they’ll worry about the cost later and Santa offers Christmas cheer – but does it last?

‘Are we able to strip back to the stable,
This fable made flesh,
our Maker enmeshed in the mess.
To bless us, possess us, and be heaven’s Yes to our race.
To embrace us in grace, evermore in our place.’
