Comfort and Joy is a series of reflections for the period between Christmas and Epiphany. Copies of the booklet are available in the Church, or you can follow the reflections online. As we hear again the Christmas story, we are invited to reflect and to find both comfort and joy in this time of frustration and challenge. www.churchofengland.org/comfortandjoy
God of comfort and joy, may we know your presence with us today and bring your gentle, joyful love to others, this Christmas and always. Amen
