    Christmas Cake

    13 Dec 2015

    Butter and sugar
    Eggs and flour
    Fruit, peel and nuts
    Spices and essence
    Mixed together and
    Baked.
    Oh the aroma of
    Christmas Baking!

    And I ask myself, Lord,
    Is our church like that?
    Who is the soft, gentle butter
    Easing the mixture together?
    Who the sweetening sugar
    Or the eggs holding all things together?
    Who is the flour lending bulk and stability
    And who the fruit and peel bringing excitement
    And flavour?
    Who brings the texture and crunchiness of nuts
    And who offers the spice and the essence of life?

    For a rich and flavoursome cake
    All are needed
    Blended together.

    In our preparations and in our sharing
    May we continue to give Glory to you
    Incarnate God
    For the variety and flavour
    Of our worship.

    Be with our preparations
    That, held and blended by your Love,
    We may meet the needs
    Of those you called us to serve
    In the name of your church
    Here on earth.

    Bless and keep us in these busy days.
    In the name of Jesus
    Our promised Saviour.

    Amen              Hazel Parsons
