Whether you are non-religious, Jewish, Christian, Muslim or from another faith… please allow me to share with you wishes for goodness, inclusivity, compassion, peace and dignity in this festive time.

It is true, as Christians we often fail to live these values. But Christmas reminds us of what really matters in life – human dignity, peace, love and life for all. May we remember that we are co-creators of in our lives. How we live matters. Our thoughts and actions participate in the shaping of our realities. May we all experience more justice, peace and love in our lives.

I planned to be in Bethlehem this year for the illuminating of the gigantic Christmas tree on Manger Square, but as you can read in another post, I was denied entry by Israel. I share with you some links I found on the internet:

    Dear Marthie

    Many thanks for your wishes at this time.

    Despite not being religious I try, but fail in my efforts to be to be as compassionate as I would like to be. For me this too is a time of reflection and inspiration, when I resolve to renew my commitments to making a small difference to helping to bring peace and dignity to my fellow human beings.

    Warm wishes and Blessings,

    Suzanne
