Have a radical Christmas

I was a bit disappointed, though not very surprised, to find that there were no Christian leaders amongst the ’12 people of Christmas’ whom the Scotsman thought yesterday make Edinburgh ‘the in-place to celebrate Christmas’.  Not that I would want to diminish the importance of the volunteer, the postwoman, the store manager or the hairdresser.

So I was very pleased to see today that 5th in the list of ‘alternative ways to spend Christmas Day’ is “Go to church” (since, as they point out, museums and art galleries will be closed).  They promise a warm welcome. 

I’ve always fantasised about being ‘alternative’ and ‘radical’.  That was one of the attractions of the Scottish Episcopal Church for me – that it is not an established Church.  And now that going to church at Christmas is ‘alternative’, I feel almost back to my radical roots in the ’60s.
