CHRISTMAS brings tidings of great joy! When we light the candles in our advent wreath of Hope; Peace; Joy and Love, we look forward to the birth of new beginnings and a season of goodwill and coming together with those we love and care for.
In spite of all the prolonged fear and anxiety around us nearly two years into the pandemic, with rising numbers and new variants, God has promised to be with us – we are not alone.
He has sent His Son to be alongside us and to lead us through every storm. He will never leave us or forsake us. He offers us His peace, joy and a reason to hope.
