Share Cheer

Salvation to all that will is nigh;
That All, which always is all everywhere,
Which cannot sin, and yet all sins must bear,
Which cannot die, yet cannot choose but die

- John Donne

Share some cheer with others. For the season of light is upon us, and it is all about the gift of Christ. The hope that comes along with God's promises sustains us through the year, but in this advent season, we wait and prepare for the reminder we come to each year. That while we were all still sinners, God sent Christ as a baby for us. A gift, to us undeserving folks, because of His deep love for us.

How can we show thanks for such a gift?
By giving to others.
Giving time.
Giving love.
Giving an ear to someone who needs to be heard.
Giving thoughtful gifts.
Giving joy.
Giving grace to someone who needs some.
Giving forgiveness.
Giving energy toward something worthy.
Giving light to the darkness.
Giving cheer to the lonely.

Giving thoughtful responses.

We are here to share the cheer of the season. Focused and centred, it is, on the love of God. Let the rush of culture and the lures of materialistic society pass you by, while letting the deeply rooted love sink into your soul this season.
