Peace and quiet at Christmas – stepping stones to healing

My Merseyside colleague, Irene Hall, has just had a weekly “Thought for the Day” published in Liverpool’s Daily Post which includes such a dear Christmas healing that I just have to share it.

SOME years ago, just before Christmas, I was up in the small hours, struggling with a heavy cold. I felt anxious about coping, but reading the Christmas story, I became aware of how quiet the night was. Not a sound. I realised that’s how Christmas actually came. In the night the Christ child was born, and the angels sang of it in the dark to the shepherds. Even the Magi  followed a star – in the night.

I realised that stillness or peace is the true sense of Christmas. I got back to sleep, the cold cleared up quickly, and I had a happy Christmas. The message has never left me. “Peace on earth” means peace deep in our hearts, refreshing us, body and soul.

Have a blessed and peaceful Christmas.

If you want to think a bit more about Christmas quietude, here is an audio “Thought for the Day”, Christmas Quiet – a Daily Lift from Christian Science lecturer Kevin Graunke.
