A SAFE, BLESSED AND HOLY CHRISTMAS
As we approach Christmas I am once again reminded of the profound impact the story of the birth of Jesus has had, and continues to have on society. For me I have once again been reminded of the significance of saying yes to God, even when a different person might be overcome with fear. The ‘yes’ of Mary, at a time when it would have significantly impacted on her life, was an opportunity for God to bring great goodness into the world. If we have the courage to say yes, we too can be people who contribute to the reasons the world may celebrate. So I wish you a safe blessed and holy Christmas this year, and brightness and life in the new year.
