“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”

As these familiar words will shortly be heard through shopping malls and played over our airways, we are reminded that this season is not just about festive decorations and cheerful gatherings—it is a celebration rooted in the beautiful wonder of the story of the Christ-child.

Each year, we are invited to reconnect and rediscover the profound meaning and significance that the birth of Jesus holds for us and for this world.   As we journey again towards the little town of Bethlehem and to the humble stable in which our Saviour was born, may the reality of what God has done for us continue to illuminate our hearts and inspire within us a sense of gratitude and awe.
