The First Sunday of Advent and the snow is on the ground

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

The first Sunday of advent, the sun is out and the snow is on the ground. This is a perfect day for taking some of those Christmas scene photos.

Unfortunately the ice and snow also make it more difficult for all of us to travel even short distances. Yesterday I saw a young couple stop their car and offer a lift to an older woman who was walking in the middle of the road as it was too difficult to use her walker on the frozen footpaths. It reminded me that we need to make a special effort to ensure that our close neighbours are not isolated this winter.

The ChurchServices.Tv service is designed to help people at home remain part of their local Christian community in Ireland (and soon the UK) by allowing everybody to take part in Masses, Services and Prayers from the comfort of their own homes. It does not nor is meant to replace human contact. So maybe this Advent we all should all look out for each other and make sure that no one is feeling isolated or lonely.


If anybody has a community scheme that enables the housebound feel less isolated this winter please contact me at and I will consider adding you to this blog.
