Though Christmas Day 2010 is here and gone, it is never too “out-dated” to ponder the words of this song:WHEN LOVE CAME DOWN to earth And made His home with men, The hopeless found a hope, The sinner found a friend. Not to the powerful But to the poor He came, And humble, hungry hearts Were satisfied again. What joy, what peace has come to us! What hope, what help, what love!
When every unclean thought, And every sinful deed Was scourged upon His back And hammered through His feet. The Innocent is cursed, The guilty are released; The punishment of God On God has brought me peace. Come lay your heavy load Down at the Master’s feet; Your shame will be removed, Your joy will be complete. Come crucify your pride, And enter as a child; For those who bow down low He’ll lift up to His side.

Do we as God’s community reflect the joy, peace, hope and love that Christmas brings?
May we all do so, not just only at Christmas but everyday of the year and in all circumstances that come our way
