“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
Happy times of celebration can be a lonely time for many people, and a time when some people can feel stressed and unloved as they see others being happy and being loved. We discussed how we can help. Our ideas included sending Christmas cards, visiting people within our community and singing songs.
We reflected upon this in prayer:
1. Spend some time thinking of someone you know to whom you could show love in the next few weeks.
2. Ask God to draw near to them and to show you how you can bless them.
3. Think of something that you love about that person.
From love we are made and to love we shall return. May our love for one another kindle flames of joy and hope. May the light and warmth of your grace inspire us to follow the Way of Jesus Christ, and serve you in your Kingdom, now and for ever.
