AT YOUR SERVICE - 3 JANUARY 2021
At Your Service
Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 - 30 minutes
They only appear in St Matthew's gospel, and we're not entirely sure exactly who they were ...... but we do know why they're important!
In this first edition of At Your Service for 2021, we explore the coming of the three Kings, or Wise Men, who followed a star, which led them to the child Jesus, with his parents Mary and Joseph. Louise Whitelegg, a Methodist Local Preacher who is also our IOM Christian Aid rep, is well known for her down-to-earth, practical approach to her faith - she joins us to share some thoughts on what the events of that first Christmas have to say to us, today.
There's some 'kingly' poetry too, thanks to Anne Clarke, and early in the morning on New Year's Day, a big group - people of all ages, and lots of children too - gathered on Laxey beach to watch the first sunrise of 2021. Pioneer Minister from Douglas - Rev'd Alex Brown - organised it, and explains why he thinks it's important that we should start the year in that way. Listen out for the story of two stones .....
And of course there's music too - and if you'd like to hear YOUR hymn choice in a future programme, send me the details - I'd love to hear from you - email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to me at Manx Radio, P.O. Box 1368, Douglas, Isle of Man.
