This weekend, we celebrate Epiphany. Our crib has been enhanced, by the coming of one of the Kings, an albino (or is it just grey hair?), bearing a gold ball. He's the product of the Caroline and Mini papier-mâché production line, which is gradually assembling a complete set of Nativity figures. Joseph and a second sheep are also 2011 additions to the ensemble on our hall table - much admired by visitors, but now to be put away in the attic.
At church itself, we have a collection of any old bits of gold today, to be sold in aid of the St Thomas More parish hall refurbishment fund.
