I’m not going to say much today, partly because it’s Christmas Eve and we’ve all got many more things to be getting on with, but also because the message from today’s advert is pretty simple and to the point.
Jesus is our unexpected guest. Someone who made it to our planet, to be amongst us. Someone who seems strange, but familiar at the same time. Someone who wants to teach us their ways, but also learn from us. Someone who didn’t belong to this planet, and was destined to return to their own place one day.
This Christmas may we all know the joy of meeting this unexpected guest. May we all have open eyes to see the unexpected guests all around us, welcoming them wherever and whenever we can.
