Hymn of the day

by Richard on December 2, 2012

Come, thou long-expected Jesus,
born to set thy people free;
from our fears and sins release us,
let us find our rest in thee.

Israel’s strength and consolation,
hope of all the earth thou art:
dear desire of every nation,
joy of every longing heart.

Born thy people to deliver,
born a child, and yet a king,
born to reign in us for ever,
now thy gracious kingdom bring.

By thine own eternal Spirit
rule in all our hearts alone;
by thine all-sufficient merit
raise us to thy glorious throne.

Charles Wesley

Recipe no. 2.
The main course of Christmas dinner is an important one. And so Mr. M. Leunig is at hand to help.

How to prepare the turkey

Approach the turkey, calmly and STEADILY. Speak gently and frankly about your intention.
Sit quietly and listen to the turkey. You might hear something you hadn’t considered. Be prepared to alter your plans.
Don’t push the discussion too hard. Take a break and arrange a further meeting - perhaps in a small cafe, somewhere cheery and relaxed.
Stroll together; along a beach, through a park, down a cobbled lane. Continue to talk and listen - a strolling conversation is more real; it has a special dignity; it has a poetic outcome.
Sit side by side and watch the sun set. Watch the stars come out. Travel together and tell each other of your dreams. Open up your hearts and take comfort in being together.
You will not have Christmas dinner, but so what, - you will have peace, divine Fellowship and most importantly, a Feathered Friend.
