METHODIST NOTES – December

Do you, like me, sometimes find quite minor things in the grand scheme, extremely irritating?
One of these things in my case is people, at the end of a TV programme saying “We’ll see you soon/tomorrow/next time”.  I just want to yell at the screen, “NO YOU WON’T”.  I might see them, but they, as sure as hens lay eggs, will NOT be seeing me.
Why do I begin with this moan at the start of my December notes?
Well, it reminds me that the Christmas angels brought their message to the Bethlehem shepherds offering peace and goodwill to all people. So, in my case, this has to include those people who I find so frustrating.  (No doubt I am an equal frustration to others!)
If you pause for a moment, I’m sure you can think of those who annoy you similarly, and also need your goodwill.
Onward then with news of Christmas events in our chapels.
On the afternoon of Tuesday 11th December,  at 2pm, we at Litcham, in conjunction with St Mary’s Parish Church, invite the junior phase of the village school to join us for a Christingle service, at which each child receives a Christingle to take home, and learns more of the Christmas story through the symbols contained within the service.  We did this for the first time last year, and it was a most wonderful afternoon, and a pleasure to spend time with so many immaculately behaved children.
Both of our chapels have Carol Services on Sunday 16th.  with Litcham’s service at 10:30am, and Tittleshall’s at 3pm.
On Friday 21st. we have the Big Carol Sing at Litcham, starting at 7pm.  We are delighted that Pippa Cook and Sarah King will be joining us once again to play for us.  This is not a conventional service, but rather a chance to go carol singing without having to wander round in the cold! There will be refreshments afterwards, and a collection will be taken for the charity Action for Children.
On Christmas Day there will be a short service at Tittleshall at 10:15am, and at at Litcham at 10:30am.
We will be thrilled to see you at any of these occasions, and yes, we really WILL be seeing you.
Happy Christmas everyone.
Stephen Lynn
