WW1, lovesick penguins, and finally... Jesus?

Last weekend our church showed Tony Jordan’s 'The Nativity’, first shown on the BBC in 2010. No lobsters or Wheely Bins in this one, it’s pretty faithful to the biblical narrative. The focus on Joseph’s struggle to believe Mary was particularly prominent.

Also focussing on the Christmas story, we understand, is Christmas Starts with Christ’s video ad, due to be unveiled tomorrow at midday. They’re after an online ‘Thunderclap’ to launch it, which we can all join with. More from the Evangelical Alliance’s Chine Mbubaegbu in our latest blog. Want to write something for us? Just drop me a line.

With peace being the theme of my church’s advent services, I’ll leave you with a prayer for peace.

Make your ways known upon earth, Lord God,
your saving power among all peoples.
Renew your Church in holiness
and help us to serve you with joy.
Guide the leaders of all nations,
that justice may prevail throughout the world.
Let not the needy be forgotten,
nor the hope of the poor be taken away.
Make us instruments of your peace
and let your glory be over all the earth. Amen †
