"This Christmas, 65 million people simply can't be at home. Forced out by the darkness of violence and fear, they're searching for safety and refuge." So reports Christian Aid in their Christmas appeal. This year, you can download an Advent Candle to colour in and to help in personal meditation, reflection and prayer. Their hope is that these prayers together with donations and gifts will help to shine a beacon of light and hope in some of these lives engulfed in darkness. To donate, click here. You can download your free candle from the Resources page.
