This Sunday we celebrate Christmas Sunday. It is the time of the year when all Christians celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into the world. It is a time of great joy, of hope for the future and the peace which should surround us all. Unfortunately, it’s hard to get focused on this message when we’re constantly bombarded by stories of unrest, violence and hatred. It seems to be coming from all directions and it’s easy to get distracted from what we should be experiencing – the love of God coming into the world; a love that lives within each of us.
My prayer is that you will take the time this Christmas season to shut off the television and the radio, lay the newspapers and magazines aside and just take time to sit and listen. The small voice of God is still speaking, below the hustle and bustle of human life and under the noise of the world. God reaches out to you this Christmas season to embrace you in love and perfect understanding. You are completely accepted and loved by God, no matter what or who you are. It is this love that is born this Christmas Day. Celebrate and hear the voice of the Christ Child! You are loved!
