Well, have you been snow/housebound the last few days? I have two dogs which I walk, however I don't walk them as much as I have walked myself the past few days...Dunrobin Road is an ice rink so I have taken to snow boots and walked wherever I have needed to go - and guess what I spoke to people in the passing. Now I normally speak to 'doggy walker people' but as a lot of people were actually out walking then it was refreshing to strike up a conversation with them....so the snow had some benefits for The Rev!
I hope you all had a happy Christmas and good New Year - even those of you who weren't very much looking forward to the festive season, for whatever reason. Sometimes when you meet with families and friends your troubles seem that bit less troublesome when you can share love and friendship.
At the start of the New Year I hope and pray that whatever this years brings, you will know that you are not alone, that the wee baby born in the manger was and is and always will be there for you, to comfort you, cry with you but also laugh and rejoice with you, so take heart and confidence from that truth.
You will notice that when you pass the church we have a banner which says God Loves You NO MATTER WHAT!! I firmly believe that and we have adopted it as our church motto. The children in the local primary schools to which I am chaplain all shout NO MATTER WHAT in unison when I say the phrase God Loves You............and it is our hope and prayer that some day, some where, that truth will become a reality to them as they grow in faith and come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their friend and Saviour.
