A Christmas Message from Bishop Cherry
In her Christmas Message, The Right Reverend Cherry Vann, Bishop of Monmouth reminds us to not be afraid during these uncertain times.
Christmas is going to be very different this year, but Bishop Cherry reminds us of the Christmas Story and the many times characters are told to not be afraid.
She says: "Those words are as true for us today as they were on that first Christmas Day. Do not be afraid. However bewildered and confused you may be feeling. However concerned you are about the future. Do not be afraid. Because however much our Christmas celebrations have been cancelled, postponed, put on hold, the truth at the heart of Christmas still stands and it will hold true whatever our circumstances.
"It is, as the angel told the shepherds, good news of great joy for all the people. For to you is born this day a Saviour who is Christ the Lord.
"Christ comes to us today, as he did 2,000 years ago - into the ordinariness of life, with all its hardships and messiness, its uncertainties and insecurities."
