The Parish of Ulverston

Presentation of Christ in the Temple

An Advent message from the Rector, Alan Bing :

Alan BingOur Christmas publicity this year asks the question: ‘What have your Christmas traditions got to do with Christmas?’ It’s a good question, because there is always the danger of becoming so used to doing things in a particular way that we forget why we are doing it in the first place.  Familiarity breeds contempt very often.

The seasonal TV adverts of the big retailers are thought provoking again this year. John Lewis have, through Monty the Penguin, emphasised the importance of relationships at this time year. Monty is looking for companionship, and his owner kindly meets his needs with the perfect gift on Christmas Day.

A desire for peace and friendship and is the message behind the Sainsbury’s advert, which remembers the truce between German and British forces at the front line on Christmas Eve 1914. We will be remembering the same event at ‘Silent Night Carols’ on Christmas Eve one hundred years later. We hope you can join us for that or one of our other Christmas services


There is still a yearning for relationships and for true community, where we can share openly and be accepted for who we are.

There is still a yearning for peace, especially in places like South Sudan and the Ukraine, but also in our own nation and even in our own homes.

At Christmas, we are reminded that God the Father sent his Son into the world so that we might be brought back into relationship with him and one another, and experience true peace.

Martin Smith asks: "Why put the 'X' in Christmas?" in this 3 minute video recording of his own composition. This is in MP4 format.

We wish you every blessing.
