We cannot help but be horrified by the horror of the events in the school in Peshawar yesterday, where innocent lives were taken so violently. It is unthinkable. We keep those most closely affected in our thoughts and prayers.
As we approach this Christmas, we remind ourselves that we celebrate God’s coming to earth as a human being, in Jesus. The one who came to bring healing for the broken-hearted, freedom for those in captivity, comfort for all who mourn, and light to the darkest and seemingly most hopeless of situations. There is hope.
In amongst all the business of last minute preparations for Christmas, I hope you will find time to reflect on this message of hope, and will receive it for yourselves.
During Thursday lunch time this week the chapel will be open. There will be an opportunity to light a candle and pray. Come and go as you please.
