Christmas day 2o16 Luke 2:10-11

To you is born this day in the city of David, a saviour who is the Messiah, the Lord                                   Luke 2:11

 Since the beginning of time itself, God has tried to communicate with us, first with individual people, then specific high priests, and then the prophets, but all that was not effective.

Now, God Immanuel, God is with us!

God dwells in the fragile life of an infant, the task is completed. The Infant Jesus will grow and develop, will touch people’s hearts and minds as he walks the dusty paths in his country of birth. God’s  story will in time unfold, a story filled with love, compassion challenge, and death.

The heavens are singing and we are in awe.

May our wonder and amazement remain with us as we follow the life of Jesus, but for now, let us be content to savour the arrival of the Babe of Bethlehem.


Babe of Bethlehem, Prince of Peace, and Life giver

As we kneel, we bring the gift of our very self to you.

It is not wrapped in fancy paper, but it is a priceless gift

  • My heart
