Christians enjoy Christmas for several weeks after the big day because the heart of Christmas is worth celebrating: God with us. The belief that God became a human in the baby Jesus can seem odd to modern minds, but we experience God's presence with us in many ways. The love of family and friends, the peace and calm in times of rest, the joy of giving and receiving gifts, the challenge of learning through failure and pain. All these reminds us that God is with us in all aspects of our lives. We can learn to notice this more and more. You are welcome to deepen your awareness at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
