Volume 1 No 4

Wow, can you believe that the year is already drawing to an end? The shops are filling up with Christmas decorations, Father Christmas is Ho Ho Ho’ing to wide eyed children, and office parties are in full swing. Shopping lists are being put together, and with times tough and belts tightened, many are wondering who they can leave off the gift list this year. However you feel about Christmas, it has arrived again and there is no avoiding the hype that surrounds it.

The question is are we going to ignore Him again this year, or put Him where He belongs, not only in the centre of Christmas but in the centre of all things, especially our lives?

Born to be crucified and make our salvation possible, God Himself came down to live out a life on earth in the same way that each of us do, the only difference being that He did it perfectly. His life started in a manger among the stench and noise of bleating goats and braying donkeys, helpless and totally reliant on His parents, God abased, that we could be exalted!
