Physical surroundings, or relationships. Familiarity of place or people. An entity that requires change if we move house or as people come and go in our lives. What then of our 'heavenly home'?
We reflect too on the situation of those who have no home for whatever reason.
LONELINESS & ISOLATION

BIRTH - the Christmas experience
Not just for around Christmas, but some pointers for reflection on birth.
Sensitivity towards any who have not had the privilege of giving birth needs to be shown, but all might reflect on what it is like to feel left out of God's plan for creation.
Elements of this theme are part of everyday life as people set 'self' aside for the sake of another, or society as a whole.
There are clear messages within the Christian gospel and the self-giving of the God who is known in Jesus Christ.
Reflections can focus on 'the ultimate sacrifice' as well as the actions of everyday.
