Church News December 2014

Dear Friends,

I must begin with a message from the Angels to you!

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. These are the words from the Gospel of Luke as Jesus our Saviour is born into the world. Fear not! say the Angels……

This year we have seen so much barbarity across the world that it makes us want to cry in despair. But God tells you to stop and look and see beyond all that is wrong to something so natural and profound and wonderful as Jesus is born into the world to tell us what God really wants of us. To love God and to love one another. Or as Micah puts it :-

“To do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8)?”

Let’s try this Christmas to focus on the light and on the wonder of the love which came down at Christmas teaching us to love God and forgive one another. Bringing us words of life and salvation.

Please join us for our Christmas services across the Benefice!

With blessings
