Joy to the world..

Well, I am way behind on writing my Christmas cards but tomorrow is my youngest daughters birthday πŸŽ‚ so we need to celebrate. It is very special for her to do so. There will be joy, especially when her sister arrives to join the celebrations!

Two thousand years Angels appeared to shocked shepherds and proclaimed “good news of great joy”. Good news comes in many ways. This was the fulfilment of a centuries old promise. Long awaited hopes fulfilled are amazing. The coming of God into the world brought great and unexpected joy then, and He still does today. What are your greatest hopes today? And your greatest source of joy?

Persecuted Christians look forward to Christmas. Where it is possible to celebrate, it is a time of great joy, a small release from normal pressures of life. But for others, it is more difficult because of poverty and pressure, including threats of being attacked. As we rejoice let’s remember them.

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising Β£6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
