I place enormous value in simply being with friends and family at Christmas time. For me Christmas is primarily about ‘presence’: the birth of Jesus, Immanuel – ‘God with us’.
At Tearfund this past year we’ve seen again how much need there is for such a ‘presence’. In a world of political, economic and environmental uncertainty, we stay committed to proclaiming good news to the poor, freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, and to set the oppressed free (Luke 4:18).
We know that God is good – that he is with us. And we will continue to follow him where the need is greatest.
May you enjoy the riches of his presence this Christmas.
