This year the West Burton Parish Council invited residents to time the switch on of their Christmas lights to coincide with the illumination of the big Christmas tree on the village green. Many have put lights up outside their houses and West Burton chapel have taken the opportunity to put a lighted cross outside the chapel. The lights are battery operated and you can see them between 4pm and 10pm everyday.
In the dark evenings of December this is a great reminder of the words of Jesus Christ in John 8 "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." It's what Christmas is all about after all.

The journey does not end there; it is merely beginning; and challenges lie ahead; there may be a stile or two to cross. We set foot in the green fields beyond perhaps loitering a...
