News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.
As I write on 12th November, preparations for advent and Christmas in the church are well underway. Some of us will be looking forward to Christmas, but for others it is an especially difficult time of year, perhaps because of financial difficulty, family rift or recent bereavement. Often the media portrays the “perfect” Christmas with a happy family all getting along and sat round a perfectly decorated Christmas table heaving with food. Even for those of us who look forward to Christmas it seldom passes completely stress free and we know not everything will be perfect.
The Nativity story reminds us that we don’t live in a perfect world. God chose to send his own son to us not as a military prince or as a king born in a palace, but as a vulnerable baby born in a stable far from home, the first Christmas was certainly not outwardly a picture of perfection.
The average adult in Britain will spend £868 on celebrating Christmas this year, but Christians believe that Jesus entered an imperfect world to call us to things money can’t buy: love, kindness, community and relationship with God. If we can engage in those things this Christmas our world still won’t be perfect, but perhaps it will be a bit better, perhaps hope can be kindled in difficult situations. I hope that if you come to our churches this Christmas you know that you are welcome just as you are, none of us is perfect. I pray that whatever your circumstances, in our churches you will find love, kindness and community, throughout the year. Jesus is not just for Christmas!
Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas.
Yours Rev’d Gaynor
