Bottom left: Rev Peter Yorkstone in green, leads a prayer on a rock near Queens Rock, Giggleswick.

Bottom right: After the market place service, where we were joined by members of the Christian Motorcyclists Association, we went to Settle Parish Church for hot cross buns.

A German family on holiday in Settle came round with us - sad to miss an ecumenical service in their home town 100km north of Frankfurt, they were delighted to join our event.

On the Square Don Secretan read a good poem about there being no remains of the wooden cross left, but that Jesus words are left and words can give us vision.

Wendy Holt told us movingly about the pain that people suffer in a crucifixion - but that Jesus had words of kindness for his mother and for the thief crucified beside him. Jesus' words of forgiveness, encouragement and comfort show the depth of God's love for us all, for his love has no bounds. This led into the final hymn which finished:

"Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were an offering far too small. Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all"

Christmas Presence - Asking and Listening

Lord we ask your presence.

We remember that the best present we can give many people, especially the old, the house bound, the lonely etc is our presence - Deep attention and deep listening are the activities of true presence

     Everyone has a story to tell, and when we ask others to share a personal story, they are almost always invigorated.
