Pause for Thought

By now our Christmas festivities will probably have been packed away.

Some people will, I know have already sought bargains in the sales ready for Santa’s next visit. 
Some will be counting down to summer holidays and journeys to lands afar. 
We now stand at the beginning of a new year, a journey as yet unknown, of challenges as well as opportunities and fresh hope. 
We also begin a journey from a stable in Bethlehem to a cross in Jerusalem, where we are again reminded that the love of God is our one true certainty in an ever uncertain world. 
Thank you. God bless.
Matthew, lay minister at St Paul’s & Community Development Worker (South East Ward).
