Some years ago, at my local Church Carol Service, I was fortunate enough to hear the following reading which is one person’s description of happenings over 50 years ago. I am far from ashamed to admit that no matter how often I resurrect the piece ( at Christmas ) it still has me in tears by the penultimate paragraph. I have altered the original piece because it is from a translation ( I think ) – although only in a small way because
1. I am not a translator, and
2. I did not see it as my place to alter such a powerful piece of writing.
I hope it adds to your Christmas wherever you may be.
