But wait – there’s more, from Rev Silvia Purdie, Minister at Cashmere Presbyterian Church, Christchurch –http://www.conversations.net.nz/ (24 Nov 2017) –
For the Cashmere congregation this year we have prepared a simple photocopied booklet of Christmas readings, including a daily reading guide (with help from Catholic.com). It is not my own work but you’re welcome to view it HERE. It includes a couple of lovely poems from Madeline L’Engle’s fabulous ‘Winter Song’ book, as well as a couple of our very special Kiwi authors, Shirley Murray and Joy Cowley.
The light of the Christmas star to you
the warmth of home and hearth to you
the cheer and good will of friends to you
the love of the Son and God’s peace to you
