26 December, 08: Christmas Eve sunset
On Christmas Eve I joined Cath, Ryan and members of their congregation for a communal picnic on the lawn outside the church. Eats were followed by hearty carol singing to Pastor Theo's guitar. With his characteristic wide smile, he chatted to the children about the great Star which had guided the wise men to the little King born in Bethlehem so long ago.
While he talked, we enjoyed our own spectacular Christmas sunset on a mild, cool and tranquil evening after days of intense heat. A perfect image for a Christmas Skywatch.
