A Taste of Christmas
By Margaret Hobbs, 29 Nov 2016
Have you ever been surprised by a mince pie? Something over 50 women attended our 'Taste of Christmas' event on Saturday 26th November, at which we tried to guess which mince pie, panettone and Christmas pud had come from which supermarket. Many of us were surprised to discover sometimes that what we liked best was not necessarily M&S, but happened to be ASDA or LIDL or Sainsbury's or Tesco. Alongside those challenges we had some 'showcase' tables of other Christmas produce, including some of our own homemades. But the most important challenge was from our Guest Speaker, Charley Ballinger, to allow ourselves to be surprised by the Christmas story which we think we know so well. That God should come to earth is surely more earth-shattering than where we shop for our festive food!
