Somehow, the need to be kind and generous and tolerant seems more urgent than ever, and that need was very much on my mind as I arranged my Christmas mantel village and imagined the story that would accompany it.

Suddenly, in the thick of all the conflicting advice comes a call for the most urgent form of action: there has been a fire in the village.
