St Columba’s young people presented a different angle on the Nativity service to a packed church on Sunday 20 December.
The children and young people sang, read and acted out the story of Jesus’ birth beautifully, but this year with an extra dimension. We were invited to consider how the story might have played out from the point of view of a slightly less wise man, who spent so long on various distractions that he missed the opportunity to visit Jesus. Our minister, Revd Liz Blair, summed up by challenging listeners not to miss out on the message of God’s love at the heart of Christmas by being distracted.
St Columba’s Church wishes a happy Christmas to everyone visiting our church or our website.
