Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without carols. It would be hard to choose
a favourite as there are so many but one of the most beautiful is entitled, Love came down at Christmas. It reminds us that the greatest gift of all was the Incarnation.
Being born in a smelly cattle stall in a backwater province of the Roman Empire, God took on human flesh and became one with us: the little baby at Bethlehem.
This great gift to humanity is the reason that we exchange presents at Christmas. The custom is a reflection of God’s never-ending love for each one of us.
As we head towards Christmas, ABM would like you consider making another gift – a gift in response to all the blessings in your life over the past year.
You can show your thanks by helping one of three projects.
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth through ABM’s Reconciliation program. This project aims to show God’s love by lowering suicide rates.
- Gender Action Groups in Zambia to target 6,000 villagers. This project aims to show God’s love by working to reduce domestic violence against women and children and by promoting basic life skills.
- The Anglican Church of Kenya to provide Christian formation to children. This project aims to show God’s love by building young children’s faith and encouraging them to develop a conscious and intimate relationship with God.
