When Covid prevented us from visiting friends and family, who did we turn to? Did we discover surprising new friends in neighbours, volunteers, local shopkeepers or members of our church family? Many of those who live alone, those shielding or those who could not visit loved ones have indicated that this year has been a lonely one. There is worry about the winter and Christmas.
The Bible is full of stories of people who create or discover their own extended families. Has Covid helped us do that? Have we discovered someone we can bring into our own extended family? Have we been surprised by support given to us?
Our Partner Organisation, Christian Aid are encouraging everyone to sing the beautiful hymn, ‘When out of Poverty is Born’ during Advent. It was written by, and used with permission from, Kathy Galloway.
