From the Editors
Every year we resolve to simplify the Christmas present routine and to get all our shopping (bar the food) done before Advent starts, and every year we don’t quite make it, though we are getting better. Why do we do this? Because the commercialism of Christmas just seems to bring us so much unwanted stress that crowds out the spiritual preparation… sometimes we get to the end of Christmas day and we’ve barely given the birthday boy a thought!
As the year draws to a close, we pray that you and your families will draw close to each other and to the God who comes to us as a babe in a manager.
