It’s day 24. Traditionally this is a double window, so you get two videos.
First up is a clip for people who are not having a good Christmas. At the worst times, where can you find hope as an atheist? One answer is from the Christian philosopher Boethius who wrote the Consolation of Philosophy. Written by a man awaiting execution it includes the idea that History is a wheel and that life is in constant change. The clip below is from the film 24 Hour Party People where Boethius and his wheel make a couple of appearances.
Finally here’s the last song from Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People from last year. If I’d realised someone had uploaded the whole thing then I probably wouldn’t have bothered with the advent calendar. But it’s a good song to finish with.
Wherever you are have a great holiday season.Google+
