More than plastic…


So I was watching one of those films. You know the

kind: cheaply made-for-TV at Christmas time. Full of cute kids whose

families are being squashed by the weight of some

manufactured crisis. Then despite my (long nurtured) defensive

cynical screen, I am punctured by goodness;

skewered by grace that grew where even the trees

are plastic. I can offer no excuses except to say that

like fake glitter on the surface of snow the hidden

heart of this angel-beast is shaped

towards love.

  1. Since you’re in the mood – try to get to see “Noel” about six people and the way their lives become connected to each other one Christmas. It has special moments of darkness and light. With this movie we send our very best Christmas wishes to you and the whole family. Joy, Peace and Adventure for 2013.
