This little outhouse and the forest in the background makes for a picture postcard as dawn breaks at about 9a.m. On a normal day it's just an average picture but add a fall of snow and it has the ability to transform a landscape and also a photograph.

'We need to show that the message of Jesus is indeed good news, not boring or suffocating or restrictive but extraordinary, life-enhancing and life changing good news.' ~Gerard Moloney

It is a waste of time complaining about the commercial side of Christmas. Nothing can stop this momentum. Likewise it's futile giving out about those who do not go to church. Equally futile is pointing the finger of blame. Much more important is to nurture and encourage what is glaringly obvious. The good news of Jesus is indeed extraordinary, life-enhancing and life changing. But it often gets lost in a lot of unnecessary complaining and wishful thinking. The challenge is to bring this good news alive and to believe that it does make a difference. This is at the heart of the Christmas message. The birth of Jesus is a reminder of God with us and among us. It's not just about some event in the past but all about the difference it can make in our lives right now.
