"Friends, this Christmastime we reflect once more on one of the most holy yet revolutionary places in history – the simple Bethlehem stable where Christ was born.

We pause in the busyness of our hectic and frenetic lives to give thanks to God for his wondrous gift. It was – and is – the greatest gift ever; a gift of healing, wholeness, restoration, love and reconciliation and, above all, relationship with God.

As we celebrate Christmas, the annual reminder of the truth of the gospel message is vital."
