Christmas Is… Joy

Date 23rd December 2012  by Ettiene de Witte  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

Christmas is the time of the year that is normally marked by excitement, gladness and laughter. It would be wrong, however, to assume that these words will mark the experience of Christmas for all people. This may well be a very sad Christmas for many in our community – a fact which leaves us with

Christmas Is… Giving

Date 16th December 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Jeremiah 29:10-14

Hope. It’s a word we generally use to express a wish or a desire. We say: ‘I hope that it all goes well’ or ‘I hope that I get that job’ to name a couple of examples. Is there more to the idea of hope though? Indeed we find great writers like Martin Luther saying

The Kids@Church children will be presenting the wonderful Christmas story as a play and in song. Christmas has a special appeal with the story of shepherds and wisemen, with stars and angels.
