Christmas Angel

 

 

 

"For this very night there stood before me
an angel of the God to whom I belong
and whom I worship"

Acts 27:23

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello, first of all we would like to wish you a very happy Christmas.

You may be reading this because you have found and taken one of over 200 special Christmas Angels we placed around Kemble this year. We hope discovering them brought a smile and a little joy to your day.

All of them have been knitted with love and prayer by members of our church and placed for you to find because over 2000 years ago it was an angel who told Mary she would be the mother of a very special baby and it was another angel who told the shepherds when he had been born. They were I am sure rather startled, surprised and perhaps even fearful at such an unexpected visitor appearing among them. We might feel the same today but the unexpected and even fearful can turn out to be the best surprise of them all when we stop and listen as the shepherds did. They decided to head straight into town to discover for themselves if the angel really spoke the truth and of course they were serenaded by a whole choir of angels as they went.

We pray that your angel may be a blessing to you and a reminder of God’s love as we celebrate Christmas. You may like to hang it on your Christmas tree or in a prominent place where it can remind you of the story of God’s love come down among us in the person of Jesus.

If you bring your angel to one of our services at All Saints Church, Kemble over Christmas we will also give you a small gift as well.

By the way, if you didn’t know, you may like to know that ‘Angel’ means ‘messenger of God’ and the message they brought that first Christmas was good news of great joy for Jesus is hope and saviour for us all.

With love and prayers at Christmas from all the church family at All Saints Church, Kemble and in the Thameshead Benefice.
