Happy and Blessed Christmas…

Alan and I have just been to Ikea for extra candles that we will need for the All Souls Service on 5th November.

Well it wasn't even bonfire night but in the shops you would swear it was the week before Christmas! But you know what? I think that's great, because as far as I am concerned Christmas can't start too early, I love it when the shops are decorated and lit with festive lights and Christmas music plays everywhere even in the supermarket; I just love Christmas and the more I hear it mentioned the happier I am!

So do I think it appropriate that all the tinsel and glitter and all the gifts bought are all to celebrate a child born in a stable?
Well yes, because if in among all the glitz and glitter just one person hears a carol and thinks about Jesus or looks at Christmas cards that depict a stable and remembers the story of Christmas then that's GREAT because just for a moment God's gift of love is remembered, Jesus our Saviour's name is spoken and then perhaps on Christmas Day among the presents and turkey it will be remembered that that the greatest gift ever given to our world, the gift of love came down at Christmas, as the Son of God took human form, born as a helpless baby in a stable.

Have a fantastic Christmas and do please join with us at one of our Christmas services to celebrate and to say thank you to God for the greatest gift of all, HIS LOVE.

Have a very Happy and Blessed Christmas.
