For the record, here are the 18 Christmas services I'm involved with this month. If you're in the habit of praying (and even if you're not) then prayers would be appreciated - for stamina, clarity, energy and being able to remember exactly which one I'm doing! I'll probably need to prepare several talks, as well as sorting out orders of service, and liasing with readers, musicians, Christingle makers, minced pie chefs and hopefully God too.
