More Christmas messages

Firstly, from the General Secretary of the World Council of Churches:

Reconciliation is a glorious message. It offers the promise that some wrongs of the past may be set right, the truth may be discovered in all cases, forgiveness may be sought and even ancient enemies may come to live together in mutual respect. It is a message of mercy and hope that reflects the great gift of God’s love in Jesus Christ.

And one here from the Moderator of the Queensland Synod of the Uniting Church (complete with odd photo!):

Shaken by the global financial crisis we are confronted with a new truth. We have too easily trusted that the financial markets would secure our way of life and provide for our futures. This trust was seriously misplaced, and many of us are now feeling insecure and asking, “Where does our hope come from?”
