So, what is the heart of the Christmas story? I believe love lies right at the centre, a love for every person on the face of this planet, overwhelmingly loved and loved and loved some more. The most outrageously generous over-the-top gift that has ever been given is this: God gave his Son Jesus for you and me.
Today I joined my team of volunteers who wanted to show this message through offering a small gift with a small reminder… When people asked why we found ourselves simply saying: Because you are loved. Did it make sense to people? Most certainly it did. One of my team, Sue, who is a student with The Light Project came up with the simple idea. Rather than giving the gifts out willy-nilly we looked to see who we felt needed that simple reminder of love the most… Furthermore we asked those whom were given gifts to pass one on to someone they knew needed hope this Christmas.
