Bill’s Letter for December 2015/January 2016

Christmas starts with Christ I find this slogan or challenge really helpful at this time of year. It was used last year and has been appropriately resurrected. With all the rush and bustle of Christmas, it is sometimes hard to keep the focus on Jesus. The commercial pressure seems to get stronger every year.
