“In spring and summer, if anyone mentions Christmas everyone else thinks that they’re mad. ‘That’s ages off’, ‘Plenty of time yet!’, but, you get round to November and think ‘How did that happen?’ ‘Where did the year go?’
Yet Christmas holds such a wealth of expectation, anticipation and joy, that the lost time is soon forgotten.
Because Christmas has that power.
This year, however, it’s even more poignant for me!
After working and Ministering at St John’s and St Leonard’s for nigh on 19 years, it’s time for me to retire! But the story of Christmas has the power for even this unknown circumstance!
No matter where next year will take me, or what I might be doing, the story of Christmas will sustain me in every way just as it can sustain you too.
After all Christmas is the story of ‘God with us’ and, as the Bible says, ‘If God is for us, who can be against us!’
God bless you all, and have a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year.”
Rev. Noel Cooper
