The climax of the month is our celebration of Christmas

(Christ-mass)

the great mid-winter festival which celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.

Uniquely, Christians believe that God has entered this world to come alongside us by being born in human form, of the Virgin Mary, to share our life in order that we might share his too.

But first we have the four-week season of Advent, which reminds us that this wonderful mystery of the Incarnation (God taking human flesh) was no accident. His coming was part of a divine plan, which culminates in the fulfilment of God's kingdom, when Christ returns in glory!
