Father Michael Assembly
8 January 2019
Fr. Michael came to lead our assembly today. He brought a Christmas scene made from olive wood that he had bought in Bethlehem. It reminds us of the story of Jesus being born, and when we listen to the carol words “How far is it to Bethlehem?” we think about the incredible journey of Mary and Joseph. They thought that the journey was a long way but if we had to travel there from Leeds, we would have to travel 5225 Km, which is a long way, and we can’t go there by donkey, but we can travel there in our minds when we tell the Christmas story or go to a church service.
