The loveliest little sheep in Bethlehem...
Elin's SEN School's Christingle service is about as cute as they come. The children and parents gathered today for carols and the re-telling of the Nativity. You would have to be made of stone not to shed a tear, as the children arrive down the aisle of the Church, looking gorgeous in their costumes and looking so happy. There is such a sense of celebration amongst the audience, of sharing in the joy and pride that these individual children bring to their families and to their school, and of course the fact that it is only a few days before Christmas compounds everything. When the candles are lit and the Church lights turned out for 'Silent Night' there is certainly a magical atmosphere, whatever your beliefs, if any. Because ultimately every single person in the Church today, whether they be Parent, Teacher, Nurse, Carer etc could not fail to acknowledge the common faith we were all sharing. Faith in these kids who amaze us all daily. It's the most rewarding kind of faith there is.
