Merry Christmas to all the readers of this blog. I trust you will all have a wonderful day with family and friends and that you remember the greatest gift of all whose birth we celebrate today. In a fast-moving world that can be so complicated the good news of Christmas is really very simple - "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests" (Luke 2:14). So amid the competing voices and in spite of those who never cease to make the simple unnecessarily complicated remember what was said to Mary many years ago - "And you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). A Merry Christmas indeed!
