In all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, the ceremony and tradition with which we surround it, we can lose sight, sometimes, of the joy at its heart.  We can put so much energy into having a good time, that we forget what it is we are meant to be celebrating, only, when it is over, to be left with a sense of emptiness and the feeling that we have somehow missed it all.  Whatever is going on in our lives just now, Jesus can bring a new beginning for us, as he has to countless others over the centuries, offering the opportunity to put mistakes behind us, to let go of the past and embrace the future, secure in his forgiveness and love.  Each of us is offered a wonderful Christmas gift, God himself bringing peace and light and life to all who welcome him.  Are we prepared to welcome Jesus, to unwrap Godís precious gift, to recognise the difference he can make to our lives?  If we can open our hearts and minds to the reality that we are truly loved and to the fact that Jesus is with us always then things will feel different.  We are not promised a life free from pain and difficulty but we are promised Godís unfailing love and his presence with us through the joys and the sorrows every moment of every day.  We are also promised a life of joy and peace with him when this earthly life is past.  If you want to know more about Godís gift of love to you I will gladly talk to you about it and try to answer any questions.  The Christmas story has the power to change lives for the better - we would love you to join in our celebrations this year. I pray that God would fill all our hearts once again with wonder as we remember the birth of Jesus and that he would bless you and all those you love with his hope and peace.  Hope to see you soon!
