Once again, we reach the final quarter of the
There are many moods and meanings to
the season of
winter. The weather and the darkness affect our feelings.
The rhythm of our
life changes and we spend more time inside
keeping warm and not engaging with
our friends and neighbours as
much as we did in the ‘lighter’ months. As we look back on late summer and autumn, perhaps with a little regret that they have passed, we
know that we should always be
looking forward, with hope for better
things to come. The festive season is a time for friends and family
but can also be a time of isolation and loneliness for some. Reach out
to your neighbours who may be
lonely at this time, a simple smile
or enquiry of health and wellbeing can make
such a difference.
The Beacon of Light will always offer a sanctuary
of warmth and welcome.
May the Peace and Love of God be with us all.
