The Moderator’s Advent message to the wider church calls for us to be the agents of hope. Rt Rev. Hamish Galloway writes:
This was a message of hope: God incarnated help that comes into the places of poverty and despair. Originally it was a baby born in the middle of a winter night, out where the animals were kept. This speaks a message of God’s presence in the most unlikely and despairing places.
May our churches help people to stop and notice the hope that the birth of Jesus brings to our needy world this year.
In short, ‘Is Jesus the help we are looking for?’ Read the message here.
