The energy of Christmas is the energy of hope, which is why we love it so much. It is a time for us to be grateful, a timefor us to share, and a time for us to give.
This year we will be at home with our family, which is such a blessing. To us the greatest gift is spending time with our children and knowing that – for now at least – they are happy and settled. There is nothing else we could wish for.
For all of us, it is these feelings of gratitude and devotion that are the springboard for joy.
We wish you the most joyful Christmas. Here is a beautiful poem we would like to share.
This was the moment when Before
Turned into After, and the future’s
Uninvented timekeepers presented arms.
This was the moment when nothing
Happened. Only dull peace
Sprawled boringly over the earth.
This was the moment when even energetic Romans
Could find nothing better to do
Than counting heads in remote provinces.
And this was the moment
When a few farm workers and three
Members of an obscure Persian sect
Walked haphazard by starlight straight
Into the kingdom of heaven.
