Time to celebrate the blessings

Monday, December 18, 2017 0 Comments

Christmas is one of the most cherished times of the year! Throughout the world people anticipate its celebration with colorful festivities that take on varied expressions in different cultures.

It is a time in which the beautiful sounds of carols soothe our ears and hearts.

It is a time in which our eyes are mesmerized by delightful decorations and the gleam of twinkling lights.

It is a time in which all kinds of gifts are generously and joyfully exchanged. It is time of beauty, unity and hope.

For Christmas, the spirit of this time is particularly understandable since Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Christians believe that Jesus, the Word through whom all good things were made, took on flesh and came into the world to reveal the fullness of beauty, unity and hope which is always in our midst, but which our eyes are often clouded from seeing.

Jesus came to shed lit on the goodness of our existence.

Consequently, Jesus is regarded as the light of the world!

May the reality of Christmas therefore serve us well! As the light in the afternoon sky grows day by day beyond Christmas, may the lights of our vision also grow so we may all the more cherish the beauty, unity and hope we are already know and allow the spirit of this time to enhance it.

To people of all creeds, countries and cultures here in our local community, may this Christmas be for you, your loved ones and us all at a time of great light – a time to celebrate the blessings which are uniquely ours!
