Whether you live on Tiree or you are just visiting ‘Life-On-Tiree’
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Before the first Christmas ‘God was for his people’. In the birth of Jesus (Christ) ‘God was with  his people’. Matthew records in the Gospel that takes his name – All this took place to fulfil what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’). Now we can experience something even more wonderful, ‘God living within us’. Having given his life in death that we might know and enjoy God forever, Jesus was raised to life never to die again. Returning to his Father in heaven, Jesus now lives in the life of his disciples by his Holy Spirit, ‘God within us’.
