‘So take me as you find me, all my fears and failures, fill my life again. I give my life to follow, everything I believe in, now I surrender.’

As the first newsletter writer of 2019, I wish you all a very happy and blessed New Year hoping that, at the end of it, we can all look back and thank God for the ways He has blessed and guided us.
As I reflect and look back on 2018 in many ways it has been a difficult and challenging year, personally, for my family but for the nation as a whole.
I imagine most of us will be familiar with the old question "Is this glass half full or half empty?"
Advent means HE COMES or just COMING.
When we celebrate advent as part of Christmas we are putting Christmas in context - We celebrate the coming of Jesus, as Saviour - and as we look to his coming at the end of time.
In Ephesians 4:1-3, Paul writes “...I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
A grand finale is being played out as autumn hands over to winter. Short days and dark nights intensify as the earth slips further away from the sun, from whence come life, light and warmth. How blessed we are that our ‘Son’ stays always close; the One who gives us life, light and joy is nearer to us than we are to ourselves.
