Happy Christmas | Frohe Weihnachten!

Happy Christmas / Frohe Weihnachten!
Thank you all who had been in St.Finian’s Church in Dublin on 24 and 25 December celebrating Christmas, celebrating God being on earth and being in our hearts.
Thank you, children, for a wonderful nativity play. Thank you all who were involved in preparing, singing, making music, reading…
Keep God’s peace in your heart. Listen to the Angel’s voice: Don’t be afraid! 

Light is shining

Light is shining despite all darkness of this world. Have a blessed Third Sunday of Advent!

One Pic shows Dublin Grafton street, the other one our Advent wreath in our kitchen.

In these days Larissa and I are traveling though Ireland, having Advent services in German in Belfast, Mullingar, Wexford, Limerick, Galway, Cork, Killorglin and Sligo. Nice to see all the people again and some new faces as well! Many discussions about the Reformation quincentenary next year and the future of some of the smaller German Services as well. There is movement, there are ideas, and my feeling is: Now we are at home in Ireland.
