As Christmas approaches many of us will be in the mood for celebrating and rightly so. However Christmas is a time when many feel they have little to celebrate, they may have lost a family member or close friend to death, separation or distance. As christians we are called to remember such people especially at this time of the year when we celebrate the birth of Christ. For many others because of illness, depression poverty or circumstance Christmas can be a very lonely and isolating time. Please remember those less fortunate this Christmas and mabey give them the best gift they could possibly receive, the gift of recognition and friendship.
If you feel lonely or sad throughout the Christmas period and feel you have nobody that will listen or understand please do not be afraid to pick up the phone and call any of the numbers below where you will find a caring ear and comfort.
Wishing you all the Joy, Hope & Peace of Christmas and remember “It’s Good To Talk”
