Happy Christmas!

You might have thought God would send a superhero to save the world
But no! he sent a baby born in a manger’ cos there was no room in the inn

You might have thought God would choose an experienced Mum to care for His Son
But no! he chose instead a young girl called Mary who’d never born a child

You might have thought God would share the news with superstars and celebrities
But no! the angel Gabriel went to poor shepherds keeping watch on a hill

You might have thought God would find a safe place for Jesus to be brought up
But no! Jesus became for a time a refugee, on the run in a foreign land.

You might have thought the Christmas story was about times and people long ago
But no! it was written for ordinary people like us today

To show that God’s gift of love really is available to everyone
No matter how rich or how poor, how old or how young we might be.
And all we have to do is ask in Jesus’ name.

Now there’s a thought.
