It’s easy to get caught up in the magic of Christmas, with all the stores beautifully adorned and decorated, and adverts portraying the idyllic Christmas. One advert in particular has taken precedence in people’s hearts with the message:
“…Seems like all they really were doing, was waiting for love…
…It’s real love. It’s real.” lyrics sung by Tom Odell (written by John Lennon)
What a great way to sum up Christmas! – and exactly what the world was waiting for in the prophesied birth of Jesus – real love. It goes beyond the baubles and the wrapping paper straight to the heart of the season. It’s a special time of year; powerful enough to lay guns and fighting aside, as we were reminded during our 1914 Remembered evening in November with the rendition of “Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht…Silent Night, Holy Night”.
(It was a fantastic evening raising over £160 for Help for Heroes – many thanks to everyone involved in the evening behind the scenes, participating and attending).
Christmas is time for everyone, it’s patience, kindness, humility; it believes, it hopes and endures: It’s real love. It’s real!
You’re warmly invited to celebrate Christmas with us – bring along family and friends and discover the reason for the season…
