This week is a time to remember God’s faithful and unfailing love… In all we feel blessed in, in all we struggle. We are held, we are cared about, and there is a trustworthy God who will live our lives with us, and be the life in our lives… There’s a tender and loving and compassionate friend who likes to be with us, who knows us and delights in us and doesn’t judge us. It’s such good news.
I wish us all every blessing this Christmas, every joy, deep peace and beauty that will sustain and nourish us in the coming days and months.
And I wish us hope for the new year, that we will be very much alive in everything we see and experience and work towards, in everything we receive and give, held in the love of God.
God is with us.
This is the day that the Lord has made – Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
