Rev Matt very kindly brought Mary and Joseph to our home through the ice and snow. They were glad to be cosy and warm, and spent the day watching us get everything ready for our Housegroup Christmas celebration. Along with Farhad, Siavash and Soheila from Iran, Mary and Joseph were our special guests, sharing in carols, prayers and readings in English and Farsi by the Christmas tree. They were then amazed by how much delicious food had been brought and shared by 17 people around the table, and smiled at how several guests were still wearing their Christmas cracker crowns as they left! We shared a prayer as Catherine gave Mary and Joseph to Ruth for the next stage of their journey. What a pleasure and privilege it had been to have them with us.
