Ideal for both individual enjoyment and for reading aloud, these reflectional poems and verses will help you to consider the events and true meaning of Christmas. Contrast contemporary preparations for Christmas with those of Mary and Joseph as they discovered that they were to become parents. Journey with them to Bethlehem as they prepared for the birth of their child. Celebrate Christ's humble nativity in verse and compare it with our own, sometimes humorous, celebrations. Look forward to the New Year and Epiphany, before finally considering Easter and the purpose of Christ's life on earth. Themed for easy reference, these poems will provide a rich resource for anyone leading a Christmas service or seasonal event. Alternatively, Reflections on Christmas would make an ideal gift.
