Christmas! Christmas that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones, once again, in sharing centuries

old traditions. Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts.

As Christians, we often proclaim that we are Resurrection people; and as we live out the reality of the promise of
Christ’s resurrection, we are. This time of year, we rejoice that we are also people of the Creche.

No matter how much we may have dreaded the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given
– now that Christmas Eve has finally arrived, there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth
that enfolds our hearts and our homes, the same sense of wonder and the same yearning for love.

On behalf of St. Christopher’s church community, the Vestry, the faculty, the staff, the Clergy and myself

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
May you have the spirit of Christmas which is peace;
May you have the heart of Christmas which is love. Amen.
