Imagine that your house has been destroyed. Imagine that a huge bomb has gone off, or that a gale force wind has smashed through Stoke on Trent. Imagine combing through the remains of where you once lived. What would you save?
Look back to the feature on day 21. This is what happened to Peter. His house was destroyed by a German bomb. One of the very few things that was saved from the rubble is seen in the picture below. What does that say to you?
This cross is nearly 80 years old and has been in our family ever since the war. It makes me think every time I see it. After all isn't that what being a Christian is all about.........?

I would like to sincerely thank everyone of the individual contributions from the last 24 days. When I first mentioned this project to Fr. Michael, I was not sure firstly, how he would respond and secondly, how the parish would respond. I have been humbled by the response and enthusiasm on both counts. The Beyond Adversity advent calendar 2020 is a testament to the community spirit and support from St Teresa's parish and St Joseph's school.
Merry Christmas to you all!
