THE OTHER day I answered the telephone and a voice at the other end said, “I have a Camel in my sitting room”.
I thought to myself, “I hope that it doesn’t give you the ‘hump’”.
In fact, the lady with the Camel is one of a group of people in the village who are knitting animals for a display to be staged in the village church next year. She wanted to let my wife know that the said animal was ready for collection from her home.
The production of these animals is giving people in the village an incentive during this lockdown period to be doing something tangible.
In the beginning of his ministry, Jesus Christ’s disciples were often unable to fully realise the full impact and relevance of what he was doing.
However, after he had sent those disciples out on a mission, they began to get a picture of the ministry that lay before them.
At Christmas time we see the models of the Stable and the Manger with the baby Jesus and at Easter we have before us the Cross and the Tomb depicting both the dead and risen Jesus.
But Jesus Christ is not just a model, he is the risen Saviour of the world.
