Rose Moschata, by RedouteHallo again to all.

On this first Sunday after Christmas, we're taking a week's holiday and not writing our usual letter in this space, updating our News Centre, or Noted This Week. In the nearly 16 years of Anglicans Online* has been online, we've only allowed ourselves a holiday once or twice.

Look for us next Sunday, the Second Sunday after Christmas (which is the Ninth Day of Christmas, if we count correctly).

Meanwhile, take a moment and read this poem by Martin Wroe:

what colour are you God
and what are your vital statistics
what's your body like
any disabilities, distinguishing characteristics
would we spot you in a crowd
transfixed by your looks... or some deformity
do you have five senses like us
or do you make sense of everything
your handshake,
is it firm as a vice or slippery as an eel,
blue eyes or brown,
overweight or undernourished
and your breath,
does it smell of life
or of garlic

if the Word was made flesh
are you flesh of our flesh
bone of our bones

[Read the rest here.]

A Happy Christmas to all our friends round the world!

See you next week, next year, and ever onward.
