The road to Bethlehem

The road to Bethlehem

Just as the angels said to the shepherds – Revd Carolyn began her sermon with the words ‘I bring you good news of great Joy.’ Even though things are still not normal we can still hear the words telling us of Mary the Christ-bearer and of Joseph the caring and faithful man who stood by her. Their life was hard, having to sleep rough in an outbuilding, yet nothing mattered for we still hear that wonderful message sent for all people. The lowly, hard-working shepherds were the first to hear the good news and we still gather together every year to hear those words afresh. And what is that ‘Good News?’ it’s the news that God loves us so much that he gave us His son so that we might get to know Him better. And although we may not truly understand the good news, our hearts and souls will be well equipped to comprehend the mystery. So let us open our hearts and souls to the sound of the angels… Amen
