Sales in the shops from Boxing Day, back to work after the Christmas break, schools starting again in the New Year. It's easy to think Christmas is over. It's not. The Church celebrates the season of Christmas for forty days, including the visit of the wise men (or Three Kings) on 6 January. Why a long celebration? Because Christmas means God is with us: God is part of our lives not separate, God is around us and within us, God is closer to us than our breath. That reality is worth celebrating long after the Christmas decorations are packed away and the lights come down. You are welcome to celebrate God's presence at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
