This year has been difficult for some of us. But remember the true reason we give gifts, have a holiday, and share in the love and warmth of this season.
Because God gave us a gift first. He gave himself, in human form, to die for us on a cross so that we can connect with Him for all eternity.
That is the gift this Christmas.
And to take that gift, and love others, that is our gift to the world, in honour of Jesus Christ.
My dearest wish this Christmas is for you to remember this.
Love and have life. This is why we have Christmas.
