My Pause for Thought this week is actually Andy’s Pause for Thought at the end of his morning briefing to the troops in Liverpool.

It was a quote from Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States from 1923-1929:

‘Christmas is not a time nor a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas’.

Every blessing, Revd. Ali
