A Christmas message from our Superintendent Minister

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and I love it!

I love Christmas, I always have and I guess I always will.

The decorations, the presents; giving and receiving, yes, socks as well, I don’t really mind as long as they are colourful and comical.

Oh yes, the food and the drink, I love my Christmas dinner.

And Jesus! I mustn’t forget Jesus, sadly many people do.

I’m not talking about the baby Jesus, rather I am talking about The Lord Jesus, the greatest gift that this world has ever received.

Jesus is God’s gift to the world and Jesus is the reason for the season. The heart of the Christmas message is ‘God is with us’.

This Christmas, in the midst of all the busyness make sure that Jesus is at the heart of your celebrations you won’t regret it!

A very happy, Christ centred and blessed Christmas.

Graham
