Message from the webeditor

If you are feeling a bit depressed and not looking forward to yet another Christmas - remember that many, many other people feel like that too. - they just - probably like you - are doing their best not to show it.

I just wanted to tell you that.


* Have a talk to the Samaritans or a friend before it gets too serious

Go for a walk early in the day and get some sunlight

Get some excercise

Do something to help someone else, or cheer someone else up. e.g. go and listen to them. read about Active Listening


Here are some good links:

Christmas Waste - facts and figures - and ideas

Buy Nothing Christmas Website an initiative started by Canadian Mennonites but open to everyone with a thirst for change and a desire for action.

Doing December Differently - An alternative Christmas handbook

What will you give this Christmas?

Christmas Day itself? why not find out if Age concern or the Salvation Army are organising a joint Christmas Meal somewhere?

Why not have a holiday at a Christian Conference/Retereat/Holiday Centre
