a choir singing a couple of songs)
Christmas is coming and as we prepare to celebrate
the coming of Jesus to this earth,
you can link with many others who are using
the following link to share that message with family and friends,
Here is a message from our two Archbishops:
For many of us, Christmas brings up so many emotions, memories and expectations. We have one nativity story, but it can seem like we all have very different Christmases.
For you it might be a time of joy and togetherness. Or perhaps it’s all about planning and to-do lists.
Many others can find it a sad and lonely time – nagged by the feeling that your Christmas is not like those ‘perfect’ ones we see in the media. But just like the unexpected assortment of people who were invited to meet the baby Jesus, #FollowTheStar doesn’t ask you to be perfect.
It says: come just as you are to take the life-changing Christmas journey. Wherever you are this Christmas, you are invited to follow the star and to be with Jesus. You are welcome. You are deeply known and truly loved.
Mary and Joseph and all those caught up in the Christmas story were surprised by the astonishing way that God chose to live among us.
Each Christmas we are reminded of God’s longing to surprise us with his gift of joy, love and new life. It’s the greatest present we can receive and share with others!
We pray this booklet offers a path for your journey closer to Jesus – and we wish you every blessing this Christmas
