Stir up Sunday

Today is Stir Up Sunday.
The last Sunday before Advent is traditionally the day to make your Christmas Puddings.
But if that idea doesn't fill you with joy, then maybe take a moment to think about this.
'Stir up O Lord, the wills of your faithful people.'
It's from the Book of Common Prayer, and it's where this Sunday gets it name from.

My circumstances are very different this year.
I have choices about how I spend this Advent Season.

What about you?
Before we get caught up in the whirlwind of Christmas, how about being stirred up a bit?
Not to make us more frantic, but to look at things differently.
Perhaps even to really see Jesus this Christmas.
'And he shall be called Immanuel.... God with us.' Matthew 1:23

Happy Stir Up Sunday.
Enjoy your pud!
