Behold, I make all things new… 

Once again, we advance through Advent to Christmas.

Here in the Antipodes, the celebration carries extra significance for many because it coincides with the summer break.  We experience the pressure of the end of the financial year, but with goodwill and hope one doesn’t normally associate with the mundane.  Transformation and transcendence are central to the Christmas message.  Jesus: from baby to authoritative teacher and charismatic leader; from manger, to an itinerant life, to heavenly kingship; from vital earthly life to gruesome death and beyond to heavenly life.  And for us: the opportunity for damaged people to become whole.  These are connecting points with hope, the essence of Christmas. 

This Christmas brings change for me. As my term as General Secretary comes to an end, I express my appreciation to the many who have supported me in my role.

Best wishes for peace at Christmas.
