‘Praying you enjoy the goodness of God Through the gift of Jesus in every moment of this beautiful Season’
Dear Friends of SHR
When choosing the Christmas card for this year, the above words, which were inside struck a chord, as it is of course my prayer for you all. But, just as the advert says concerning new puppies, the gift of Jesus is not just for Christmas; the gift of our loving, Lord Jesus Christ is for each and every one of us, each and every day of the year.
It is a beautiful season but it can also be, for some, a sad season. It’s a time when we remember loved ones whom we see no longer and it’s a time when loved ones may not be close enough for us to enjoy their presence. But always remember dear friends that we, at St Helens Road, are family and as family are there for one another not just at Christmas but throughout the year and as God showed His love for us through the gift of Jesus, so too we can share the gift of love for others through the love that we share with one another.
May Blessings abound for each one of you this Christmas time and throughout 2018.
1.Jn.4:9 ‘God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him.’
