connexions: The magic of Christmas

Many Christians are apt to be just a little bit churlish when it comes to Christmas. I sometimes get a sense that Christians are resentful that “our” festival has been stolen, taken over by revellers who are happy to sing carols and watch a school nativity play but will give little or no thought to […]

connexions: Hymn of the day

Lo! He lays his glory by,
Emptied of his majesty!
See the God who all things made,
Humbly in a manger laid.
Cast we off our needless fear,
Boldly to his crib draw near;

God-with-us is all our own.

The poor shepherd’s simple strain?
No; for Israel’s shepherd, he
Loves their artless melody.
He will not refuse […]
