Merry Christmas & Ngā mihi o te Kirihimete
Most of us know something of the Christmas story – a baby, a stable, animals, wise men, shepherds. But it often seems far removed from our lives here and now. What is the point? It’s a great story but does it mean anything for us here now? The answer is YES!
“The birth of Jesus is a birth with a message. It takes the entire Bible to bring the complete message, but this birth is the core of it: In Jesus, God is here to give us life, real life.” (from the Message of Christmas – E. Peterson)
