John 1 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.(Fine replace "all men" with people and you get the idea) This is today's reading and falls on the celebration of St John. Already the excitement of Christmas is wearing off and so this build-up to the birth is over - where next? Well a good place to start is with children. One of the most exciting and enjoyable things about being in a room, with a child, is the perception that the child has of everything. Often things have to be explained, explained and explained again because alot of what is seen and experienced starts from fresh... therefore we are almost then in the position of moulding their outlook. Why share this nuggets of known information? Because today is my birthday and also St Johns day so a reading about creation was most enjoyable and worth sharing... Take Care Y'All John
