Rev Grant Maclaughlan writes:
There are three words that every person needs to hear, whether from a spouse, a partner, a parent, a child, a friend…
“I love you!”
We all long to know that we are loved by others. The Christmas Story is a love story, the moment when God declared, “I love you” to all of humanity through the coming of Jesus. This act of love is expressed through the words of the traditional carol.
Love came down at Christmas,
love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
star and angels gave the sign.
God’s love for us is generous, sacrificial, forgiving, life refreshing and it is a love which never gives up.
Why not take a moment and quietly reflect on the words “God Loves Me”. Repeat them slowly in your mind.
This Christmas may we all hear and experience the wonder of God’s love.”
Everyone is welcome to join us for any of our services which will be led by our Minister, Rev. Grant Maclaughlan.
