CHRISTMAS is a wonderful time of the year.
A time for relaxing and rejoicing with family and friends.
A time to reflect on the year that has been and on the year that is to come.
A time for giving gifts and hopefully receiving some.
But above all it’s a time to celebrate Jesus.
Take a moment this holiday season to give thanks for this amazing gift and also to embrace its message – that we should be accepting of all people, quick to forgive, compassionate to those less fortunate, provide help to those in need and bring peace to wherever we can.
We all have the opportunity to be a light in the community and be the change that we want to see in the world.
Don’t underestimate the difference you can make this Christmas and never forget the true reason for the season.
