Merry Christmas

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

Well Merry Christmas everyone. It is important to remember the reason for the season. Christmas is the day we take to honour God’s gift to mankind. Someone who was able to live a life that justified mankind’s existence. The perfect person. The perfect sacrifice. The new creation. We go to church and celebrate his birth according to each of our customs. The gathering of the family. The turkey dinner. Let us also remember those less fortunate than ourselves. Reach out and bless someone with a kind word, a small gift and, if the opportunity arises, the gospel that will set them free. It is a time of giving. Give with a joyful heart. May God bless you and keep you in the centre of his will.

Recovery and Support Group

Remember back when I wrote about Alcoholics for Christ. Well, our church started a new program designed and written by one of our church members named Karl Fair. The meetings have been going for about four months. It follows the same line that you would find in any twelve step program. I take my hat off to the support staff that make this program operational every Tuesday night.

My small part is to provide the praise and worship songs at the beginning of the meeting. Though I cannot be at every meeting I do my best. I missed singing while accompanying myself on the guitar over the past several years. It was a real blessing to myself and hopefully to those attending last night’s meeting… six hours ago.

My thanks to Crossfire Assembly in Hamilton for allowing me to participate on the church worship team and for the Recovery and Support Group for allowing me to lead in the worship part of their service.
