Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas…

The Amicus Christmas Party was hampered slightly (no seasonal pun intended) by the lack of space, but in spite of that it was a success. We welcomed back those who had returned from Uni/School for Christmas, and some of the less regular Amicus attendees. Everyone brought a sweet or savoury dish and simply spent the evening catching up with each other. We ate, drank and were merry. Whoever brought the cheese wrapped in bacon is a genius!

We had an informal time of sharing news, celebrations, concerns, etc, and spent some time in prayer. Alex lead devotions and using a video clip challenged us to remember the real “reason for the season” and to remember and look forward to the Easter story too.

After washing up we ended with a massive game of French Cricket – and I’m not aware of any injuries this week – well done everyone! It was a great game with very little mocking (for a change) and everyone encouraging and building each other up.

Lost Property: someone left behind a dark green biscuit tin with a hinged lid, containing some iced biscuits. I confess I’ve sampled one of the biscuits (very tasty) – but the rest are in tact. If it is your tin please let me know. If I haven’t heard by 27th December I’ll eat the rest of the contents and keep the tin ;o)

Please pray for Alyssa Cope and her family. She has been unwell for some time and was today transferred to Oxford for tests. Pray that she will be comfortable this Christmas, and that the rest of the family would find some relief from the stress, and safe travel to/from Oxford.

As it’s Christmas, here are some random links to seasonal websites:

Winterbells – a game involving a jumping rabbit and bells:

White Christmas – a unique rendition of an old classic:

What is Christmas all about? – according to Charlie Brown:

Finally, if you’re a Flickr user (and I know some of you are), there are two special Christmas features available which you may not know about yet. When you’ve found a suitable photo, adding a note which reads “ho ho ho hat” will add a Christmas hat to the picture, and a note reading “ho ho ho beard” will add a white beard. Both the hat and the beard can be repositioned and sized for best effect. [ click the picture to see how it looks ]

Next Year: The next instalment of the now infamous Amicus Quiz will take place on Wednesday 3rd January.

Have a fantastic Christmas!
God bless…
