Sam Wan looks at the human need for memory -- how it is particularly poignant at Christmas. He reminds us to reach out to others at Christmas, particularly with the assurance that we are never forgotten by God.

"We have all had some experience of isolation over the last few years. But for many of us it has been a temporary thing. Soon families will gather; Christmas crackers will pop and the figgy pudding will be brought out again. But for others, holiday seasons are reminders that grief and isolation are a permanent fixture."
