Post Xmas Blues

Its all quiet now, the stocking is empty too
I think Ive got the post Christmas blues.
The food has been eaten, the waste has been thrown out too
I think Ive got the post Christmas blues
There is an emptiness now, I don’t know what to do
I’m sure Ive got  the post Christmas blues
I wonder if Joy, Love, Hope and Peace will disappear now I have the post Christmas blues??

The big day is here!
So let us go to Melbourne (or wherever you are) and see this thing that has happened
let us go down the stairs 
let’s go across the street
let’s go to a friend’s house
let’s go to that relative that you actually don’t like
let’s go to that homeless guy in the park
let’s just go anywhere
and see this thing that has happened.
For the miracle of the birth of Christ is everywhere and for everyone.
Enjoy it, spread it, live it.

Happy Christmas

Extract from the diary of Mary.
January 6th 0 A.D.
Three very nice men turned up at the stable today, a touch overdressed perhaps in their big long robes and crowns but they did bring some prezzies. The gold will be useful, the frankincense smells nice and it will keep the mozzies away but I think we’ll be re-gifting the myrrh to Joe’s mum next Christmas.
They said some nice things about little Jesus and two of them seemed to know a lot about him. However, one did say he looks like his dad, Joe didn’t say anything???

This boy has changed my world. I pray that millions will say that too.

Holy – dedicated or devoted to the service of God.
That’s what the dictionary tells me. When we think of holy people we think of do-gooders, ‘butter wouldn’t melt in their mouth’ types, meek and gentle souls. 
And yet one of the holiest people I have ever met is a foul mouthed, tattooed, whiskey drinking biker. He doesn’t claim to be holy, or even nice. He doesn’t talk the holy talk but he sure walks the holy walk – he is the hands of Christ everyday, to anyone who needs him. (And by ‘anyone’ I mean ANYONE; drunks, drug addicts, homeless folk, clergy – the list goes on.)
I think Jesus would bless him, I wish everyone in the Church was as holy as him.

I wonder how long before we are ‘numbed’ with all the information we get via the media sources we have access to?

How we respond and react, and how we are affected emotionally may well make us ‘numbed’ and unable to respond to the stuff we are actually able to contribute and respond to in positive ways.

During times of ‘crisis’ such as we have witnessed locally and even from far away places, it is easy to talk about ‘them’ or ‘those people’ who perpetrate such acts.

I wonder if we have become numb to our own ‘acts’, and if we compare ourselves to ‘those people’.

The story of the woman caught in adultery maybe a good way to understand how we should respond?

Those who stood accusing, this woman, were hardly blameless. inviting the ones without ‘sin’ to cast stones, the only one who was eligible did not, rather offered a way to restore the person in question.

Perhaps we ought to have a good look at ourselves and see how we might ‘unnumb’ ourselves to the ‘evil’ that we harbour??


Can someone tell me how to be still at Christmas? It’s a whole round of going to see this person or that person; another party; a Carol service or 5; a couple of nativity plays; buying presents; eating, drinking and trying to be merry!
Everyone is busy, the expectations are high, so much to do, so many people to see. Not enough time to fit everything in.
Today – take a breather. Sit quietly for two minutes; do it

right now and collect yourself, just be still and recharge.

Be still and remember that God is coming.

Advent 21

Sheep conjures up images of Shaun the Sheep for me, sitting with one of my grandsons and laughing together till it hurts!!
In particular the episode where the young sheep, Tim takes the farmers quad on a ‘joy’ ride!!
The hilarity, which follows, never gets old.
Jesus if often referred to as to as the ‘good shepherd.
This may seem strange to us, as shepherds are not part of our cultural norms, but to the people of the day it was very clear.
Remember shepherds were not highly regarded; in fact to say they were the scum of the earth would not be over stating it!!

That Jesus would be known as a shepherd, can only mean one thing, Jesus loves scum bags…. Now that’s good news!!


Advent 20


Light does more than help us to read in the dark; no it’s so much more…we know the light when we see this…
I will appoint Peace as your overseer and Righteous as your taskmaster.
Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction with in your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.

What do we bring to the world, Darkness or Light???


Advent 19


At this time of the year we don’t’ merely give’ common consent’ to God.
This time we celebrate God coming to us as one of us!!

Glory to God, whose presence brings to life to all, without fear or favour!!
