A Letter from Rev Rebecca Clarke
As I write this Christmas message, I am aware it has been another difficult and challenging year for everyone. The coronavirus has continued to take its toll on each one of lives. So, the true meaning of Christmas of a baby born in a stable, who is the saviour of the world, is a message we need to hear this year probably more than any other.
For the birth of Jesus brings to us a sense of hope, it brings us light and most importantly love. Jesus offers to each one of us the gift of unconditional love. ‘Love’ is at the very heart of Christmas. It is about a God who chooses to meet with us in a tiny, vulnerable baby and as that baby grows into a man God’s unconditional love is revealed to the whole of humanity.
A poem by Christina Rossetti sums this up quite well, it is one of my favourites and I would like to share it with you this Christmas:
Love came down at Christmas by Christina Rossetti
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, all divine,
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and angels gave the sign.
Worship we the Godhead,
Love incarnate, love divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
But wherewith for sacred sign?
Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all people,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
May the love of God abide with you and all those you love this Christmas and throughout the New Year,
A very Merry Christmas to all,
Rev Rebecca (Rev Rebecca Clarke, Team Rector North Meols)
