If we are not careful, at Christmas we
rush from one thing to another, the parties, the presents and, of course, the food! It can be hard to find time to think about what
Christmas really means. So why not make
a point this year of setting aside time just to stop for a moment and think
what Christmas is actually about. It’s
about Jesus, God’s son, the one who can bring God’s love, forgiveness and
purpose into our lives. The bible puts
it this way - This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only son
into the world that we might live through him [1 John 4:9]
You are very welcome to
join us as we celebrate Christmas and discover for yourself who, and what, it is really about.
