Don’t worry we weren’t camping for Christmas!! Although one of us was in a Youth Hostel on the top of South Downs listening to the wind howl and whistle!
And the tent in questin wasn’t outside… somewhat bizarrely it was inside a church! We rocked up at Bishop Hannington church on Christmas morning, not quite sure what to expect… and one of the preacher’s illustrations involved erecting a tent!
I think he was explaining that Christmas marks God coming to earth as Jesus – but that he wasn’t here permenantly, just pitching his tent for a while until it was time for him to accomplish his salvation mission at Easter….anyway, I couldn’t resist grabbing a quick snap for the blog!
