Home for Christmas

What a weekend! The church was packed for our unrehearsed nativity on Sunday as our young people, aided by the young at heart acted out the Christmas story aided and abetted by the angel Gabriel and a narrator. It was a wonderful morning and great to have so many young people involved as we worshipped together. However it has to be said that the minister was not at his brightest and best having been up half the night trying to help his older son fly home from college in America. I am glad to say that he did arrive home safely, albeit nearly 12 hours late.
However my son is not the only person trying to get home for Christmas. Planes, trains, buses and cars are going to be full over the next few days as people try to get home to spend Christmas with their loved ones, to go through familiar routines and family traditions and for the most part there will be many versions of the phrase, “it is good to be home,” heard throughout the land.
It is good to be home, yet many people do not understand where they are really at home. I firmly believe that we were created to love and to be loved by God. That is why Jesus said it was they greatest commandments, to love the lord our God with all our heart, soul mind at strength and to love our neighbour as our self. When we recognise that purpose and start to live that purpose then we truly feel at home and we experience peace. If you really want to come home this Christmas and experience the peace of which the angels sang then I invite you to come home for Christmas, to your real home, to your spiritual home. We have services at 11pm on Christmas eve, preceded by carol singing with mince pies and mulled wine from 10.30 and then a short birthday party for Jesus at 10.30am on Christmas morning. There is always a warm welcome at your home in Kinnoull.
