Good News at Christmas

December 21, 2021

"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people."

We approach this Christmas at a time of heightened anxiety, having spent much of the last two years living in fear of Covid-19.

Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water, along comes the Omicron variant. Accompanied by non-stop media speculation, political posturing, and conflicting expert opinions, this has led to an increased level of fear and uncertainty in the community. 

What we need in the midst of fear is good news.

The good news the angel announced was the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, who would "save his people from their sins" and so bring "peace on earth to those on whom God's favour rests".

Peace with God - and peace within - brings joy, not fear.

May the good news of Christmas bring you peace and joy.
