Message from our Chaplain Dear friends, As I write this piece for the first Newsletter of 2016 the carols of Christmas are still ringing in my ears. However, I know that by the time you get to read this edition, the “Hark the Heralds” and the “O Come All Ye Faithfuls” will be back in storage for another year – alongside the Christmas decorations and the Christmas lights. Nevertheless – to coin a phrase – Christ is not just for Christmas. In fact, it may well be that it is only when we return to the “common round and the daily task” that the hope and challenge which the Christ Child brings comes into clearer focus. In this regard, I want to share with you some beautiful verses penned by Howard Thurman, the great African American author, theologian, educator and civil rights leader. His words are a powerful antidote against the temptation to return to “business as usual” once the festive season is over. On the contrary, it is now that the real work begins; the work of playing our part in building the “Kingdom of God” – God’s dream of an all-embracing community of justice and peace – on earth as it is in Heaven. Thurman’s words are entitled “The Work of Christmas” and they were first published in his 1985 volume “The Mood of Christmas and Other Celebrations”. They make a wonderful “To Do List” – a sacred checklist for those contemplating some New Year’s resolutions. When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone, When the kings and the princes are home, When the shepherds are back with their flock, The work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, To heal the broken, To feed the hungry, To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations, To bring peace among brothers, To make music in the heart. A happy, healthy and purpose-filled New Year to you all. Darren. ~ 5 ~
