RECTOR'S
NEWSLETTER

God With Us
December 2023

Dear friends,

Amongst all the other good things that we do and share at Christmas time, you are welcome to join us as we gather in church to celebrate the good news at the heart of Christmas, as we sing carols and hear familiar readings from the Bible. The book of Isaiah speaks of a child who will be born, and who will be called ‘Immanuel’, which means ‘God with us’. And the gospel of John explains the birth of Jesus in these words:
            The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.
There is a more recent version of the Bible that translates the verse in this way:
            The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood.

These words express the wonderful truth that God has chosen to come and share in the reality of human life, in order to show the full extent of his love for us. And because this was true in the particular time and place of the human birth of Jesus, so it can be true for all times and all places, and be true for us, our families, and our neighbourhood, today.

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas.

Revd John Waller
