"If you find you have some time, how wonderful if we could have a little chat and share a cup of Christmas tea."
A man receives an invitation from his elderly, ailing aunt and doesn't want to go. It's the midst of the Christmas rush, and who needs the aggravation? The depression? The strain? Driven by guilt, he visits her anyway—and rediscovers the true meaning of Christmas.
Tom Hegg wrote A Cup of Christmas Tea in 1981, when his pastor asked him to write something for his church's 125th anniversary.
