Reverend Imogen Nay, Rector at St Andrew’s Church in Rugby, has delivered a special Christmas message to the borough.
She said: “At Christmas we do enter a mystical, magical moment where once again we can believe in the power of love to transform human experience.
“In 1914 on the battlefield, enemies, soldiers from different sides, looked one another in the face and wished each other Happy Christmas.
“In our society today we still have the need to look those we dislike, blame, accuse in the face and see that they too bear the image of God.
“Transforming our enemies into friends is the magical transforming work of God but at Christmas we too can take part in that work.”
