Steve’s Newsletter – December 2021

As we come together at this time of year, a time for family and friends, it’s good for us to also spend some time
reflecting on the “real reason for the season” – Jesus.

It’s important that we welcome Him into our homes and into our celebrations, remembering that, as Christians, we
celebrate Christmas not as a secular holiday, but as a celebration of the birth of our Saviour. As Scripture says;
God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son.’ [John 3:16 NLT] and that; ‘The Word became flesh and
made his dwelling among us.’ [John 1:14 NLT]

In a world that wants to make Christmas only about presents and food, Father Christmas and self-indulgence, it can be all too easy for the Christian celebration to be ‘drowned’ out.

Do take time for family, friends and parties, but also take time for Jesus.

May you be richly blessed as you celebrate the birth of Christ this year.
