All significant truths are private truths. As they become public, they cease to be truth; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst catchwords.

Christmas comes but twice a year!
I am now back from retreat, the theme was the Incarnation, hence this blog title. I must admit that I didn't think we would quite stretch to nine lessons and carols followed by Christmas dinner - but we did and it was all rather imaginative. I don't know quite what the neighbours thought when hearing the strains of O Come all ye Faithful, but it must have given them some food for thought; we were more preoccupied with turkey...
Each group took responsibility for part of the readings and carols. As our group had a German speaker, we sang the popular German carol "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen", apparently there is an English version, but I have never heard it.
