The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined. (Isaiah 9: 2)
Unfailing love and truth have met together. Justice and peace have kissed! Truth springs up from the earth, and Justice smiles down from heaven. (Psalm 85:10–11)
“Do not be afraid; for see I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord”. (Luke 2:10–11)

With those who long for a caress, with those who are looked down on
With those who experience only dust on the road, with those with calloused hands
With those who have neither shelter nor friend
In resisting and protesting against fear and threats, abuse and exclusion, violence and empire, In finding and providing an assurance of opportunity, a safe space, a refuge, and a home, in receiving, realising and proclaiming faith, love, peace and hope
We join the movement of liberation, a walk in the company of Immanuel,
and celebrate Christmas every day!
