Uniting Church 2021 Christmas Messages
January 1, 2022
This Christmas, amid the weariness, anxiety and tension in our world, the birth of Jesus brings hope, says UCA President Rev Sharon Hollis in her first Christmas message.
"In coming amongst us as a baby, God enters into all the riskiness of human life," says Rev Hollis.
"The risk of disease and death, of illness and injury, the risk of loneliness, alienation, and rejection, of living as member of a colonised people in a world of injustice."
"Jesus meets our fears showing God is not distant from the world but fully in the world. In meeting our fears, Jesus brings hope."
"Hope that God is with us, amongst us and alongside us in Jesus."
The President's 2022 video message is available for download to play at Christmas events and services.
