Christmas Greetings!

A Christmas break. Blogging may not occur as I'll be off to the Iona Community and unsure of Internet signal there.

Have a good time whatever you do

Look forward to seeing you in the new year

Have a Very Merry Christmas.....

(Belated) Sunday Song - Christmas Special



Man Smart : Woman Smarter.  A rather apt song to have in the run upto Christmas, as we see the central role that women take in the life of jesus.....but it is also a very good song and reminded me of a very good book I read recently - the Handbook of Non-Sexist Writing - which came to mind as I was singing many carols and hymns with the phrase 'saviour of all men' etc....

Take Care Y'All

John

(please note; I appreciate this is a song by a man but I initially heard it sung by Joan Baez but can't find a youtube of her singing it)
