Christmas at St Mark's

Happy Christmas –  busy, busy, busyKnitted Christmas Nativity

The pace of life can be hectic at any time of year but the lead up to Christmas can be frenetic. I have adopted the slogan ‘what’s the hurry, Surrey?’ in an attempt to keep myself sane by maintaining a reasonable pace of life.

It takes effort to slow down; it takes discipline to stop and relax, to reflect on the important things in life. Christmas can be a great family time but it can equally be a time of family arguments or loneliness. The baby in the manger came to be known as ‘the prince of peace, God with us’ that is so often miles away from our experience.

This December carve out some time to think and be. If it helps to come to church to be reminded what the story is all about then we’d love to see you at St Mark’s.
