Stir Up Sunday

Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people, that richly bearing the fruit of good works, we may by you be richly rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever. Amen.

So reads the Collect for the last Sunday after Trinity before the feast of Christ the King over took it. If you listen to 'The Archers' you will know that it has for centuries been the prompt for families to come together to stir the Christmas Pudding mix. Usually, it would be for the pudding for 12 months hence but nowadays it tends to be the the coming Christmas Day. It is a tradition that is passing away, sadly; unless we get a Christmas Bake Off competition.
