How are your preparations going for Christmas? Are you the super organised kind of person who has everything boxed up and ready far in advance of the season? Or are you the kind of person who is always chasing Christmas and does everything at the last moment? I guess most of us fall between these two extremes. It can be a very frantic time of year depending on your family commitments. But whatever you are doing there is one ingredient which will help you to enjoy it, love! It is love which is at the heart of it all and if this is missing or lacking it can be a very miserable time. Scrooge learnt the hard way that love makes all the difference in our enjoyment of Christmas...

The Christian faith is essentially about love
– because God is love.

At Christmas we celebrate God’s love for us in coming to share our human life in the person of Jesus. At Easter we celebrate the depths of that love in dying for us, and its triumph over death itself in the resurrection. At Pentecost we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, ‘power from on high’, to enable us to love as God has loved us. It’s as simple as that, really.
