Open or locked down Christmas will come. Together or separated Christmas will come. Shopped to you’ve dropped or wrapping a single orange Christmas will come. That very first Christmas – life was pretty fragile too as Jesus, God’s own self entered an uncertain world. The boundaries of heaven and earth were blurred and angels sang. They sang of peace and joy to God’s people on earth. Why? Because Jesus’ birth breathed new life and hope into a struggling world then, and now.
These things this Christmas remain certain - God loves us, God came to us, and comes to us still.
Christmas blessings of love and hope for 2021 to you all.
A Christmas smile: A young child when asked where Jesus came from said ‘An egg’. ‘An egg?’ The minister puzzled. ‘Yes - it says he was laid in a manger’. 😊

A man sent his friend a cryptic Christmas card. It said: A B C D E F G H I J
K M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z. The recipient puzzled over it for weeks,
he finally gave up and wrote asking for an explanation. In July he received the
explanation on a postcard: "No L."
