A Happy Christmas to you all

It’s easy to forget that the Christian teaching on Christ’s incarnation is closely, and mysteriously, related to the doctrine of creation:

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.

All of us at the Camel’s Eyrie wish you all a wonderful holiday and a prosperous New Year

    Found out on Christmas, which is now yesterday, that even the atheists have something to celebrate on Dec. 25, since it is Isaac Newton’s birthday. Dorothy Sayers did a satire of the modern world in which the December season is Advertisement, culminating in the celebration of Wishmas, which celebrates the birth of Science, because it gets us all our material wishes. Hope you all had an adequate Wishmas… :), as well as the more significant spiritual celebration. Also, given the news reports about the weather in England, hope all is well (and heated) at the Garvey estate.

      Hi pngarrison

      I had to travel across country on 23rd because of a family death just as the worst of the weather broke, and return the following day. The journey was astonishingly easy, although there were floods in our area and thgere are a number of large trees down in the woods around the Eyrie.

      Various children had much worse journeys to us across England though floods and closed major roads, but Christmas was celebrated in Tolkeinesque fashion here in the warm.

      We’re promised another major storm tomorrow, though, so a Wizard of Oz scenario is still possible. Maybe we’ll touch town near you…

    Happy new year to everyone. We’re headed back home to the land of Oz tomorrow, Lord willing. “Hercules” may seem to have a different agenda — that’s the name of the winter storm dumping snow all along tomorrow’s planned route as I type this. Our holiday may get extended. We’re driving. It really is beautiful out if you are warm and watching through a window.
