The Churches Together in Faversham Christmas card has been delivered to every house in the town.
Why do we do it?
At some point before, during or after Christmas, most of us probably ask that question. Why? Cards, presents, shopping, food, drink, decorations, family, hoping credit card bills won’t be too bad. Why on earth do we do it?
We do it because Christmas marks the turning point in the human calendar, when BC – before Christ – became AD. Christmas reminds us that God, the author of human history, has written himself into our narrative by sending his own Son to be born to a poor, single, virgin mother.
Jesus Christ grew up to perform miracles, teach and die on a cross in his early 30s to give each of us a way back into our lost relationship with God, to give us light in our darkness.
So why do we do it, ignoring such incredible significance year after year? Why not find out more about Jesus who said ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’
