A Christmas Assembly in Penygawsi Primary School was today’s priority. The practice for the School play is in full swing judging by the fact that at least one of the classes contained children dressed in clothes from the Victorian era.
I shared a story of a family who wanted to celebrate the birth of a new baby with a party. When everything was ready and the guests began to arrive, the parents took their coats and placed them on the bed where the new baby was fast asleep. As the party went on, the coats fell on top of the baby so that when the family went to get the baby, they could not find him. After a long search the baby was found safe and sound where he had been left and reunited with the family.
The application is obvious, many of us enjoy Christmas and manage to forget the central figure, Jesus Christ. The children listened really well and we finished with “Away in a Manger”, my first carol this year though probably not the last.
Please pray for the local schools, the pupils and staff, for Christians who attend and work in the schools and that the opportunity to take assemblies will be maintained.
