At this time of year we remember distant friends and so we send good wishes to America, Australia, Canada, Germany and Norway to name but a few countries where we know we have church connections. We also think of those nearer to home who are no longer able to physically attend church but who are still in our thoughts. Having refused to embrace technology for so long even I have now been converted to the joys of the internet. While very aware of the disadvantages there is no doubt it can maintain friendship links a lot quicker and easier than pigeon post!
However for those traditionalists amongst us who still like to receive a card please note, rather than give cards to each other we are offering wall space for church friends to “post” their joint card to include everyone. That way we all send and receive good wishes, save on postage and we do not have a great pile of cards in the downstairs tearoom that have not been uplifted by individuals! So I look forward to welcoming you on the 16th and sending Blessings and Good Cheer to those who cannot attend.
Yours sincerely, in a flurry of tinsel but hopefully not snow.
