Jill's Letter

     

    With what joy must people one hundred years ago have greeted the coming Christmas season after the 'war to end all wars'.   Despite the grief at the loss of so many lives, keenly felt by people everywhere, there was at last something to celebrate in a traditional family Christmas.

     

    Today we too look forward with joy and anticipation to our Christmas celebrations but, as Christians, with the hope that people will realise that there is more to appreciate than just food and presents:  the Son of God came to live as one of us - the greatest gift the world has ever known.

     

    May His peace be with us at Christmas and in the coming New Year.   God bless us every one.
