‘When Joseph and Mary had finished doing all that was required by the law of the Lord, they returned to their home town of Nazareth in Galilee’ (Luke 2v39)
I wonder what part of the Christmas story you like best? I wonder also which bit of Christmas you like best? The queuing at the shops, the wondering if you have got everyone a present, the cooking and preparation of food, hosting a constant stream of family, finding someone has eaten your favourite chocolates, the ones you were keeping!!! So many good things about Christmas!!!
I wonder which was the best bit for Mary and Joseph, the journey, the crowds, the accommodation, the disturbance of the shepherds and the wise men, trying to get everything the law required done!!!
For some people the above verse from Luke is the best part of Christmas, when it is all over and things return to normal. Yet that had to happen even for Jesus, after everything had been done they settled down back to normal, and yet even in the normal God was at work.
Whatever your Christmas is like, and I hope you have a wonderful and love filled time, when things get back to normal will you still sense God at work? I hope so.
I trust and pray that the God of Christmas and the New Year will bless you all richly.
Grace and peace Neil Drayton

@ The Square
Christmas can be such a busy frantic time, rushing from one thing to another. It can be difficult to find time to pause and think about the real meaning behind the festivities.
We celebrate the birth of God's son Jesus. His birth brought love, hope and peace into the world. In the rush of Christmas we invite you to take some time out and join with us at The Square as we seek to find God's presence and peace in our lives.
Wishing you hope and peace this Christmas, Neil.
