Through the Year with Robin...

Christmas is a time when Christians the world over think about the arrival of God in the form of a tiny baby, Jesus Christ. In that one sentence, the syllable “Christ” appears no fewer than three times. You might ask: what does it mean? Was it perhaps the surname of Jesus of Nazareth? Actually, no.

When the church uses the word “Christ”, it is thinking back in time to an ancient Greek word, Christós, which means “the one who is anointed” (or chosen). This kingly title also arrived with us in the Hebrew word, “Messiah”, which came to be seen as “the one who saves or liberates”.

So, in Christmas we see the coming of a new kind of king chosen by God to set us free. But how? Jesus, through his life, death and Resurrection, shows us his Way of justice and peace, where we are called to live renewed lives in which we find a need to love God and our neighbours, near and far. Jesus also points us to the Kingdom of God, which is firmly rooted in this earthly life – a life lived together under the care of God – who is Love.

So then, Christians see Christmas as the coming of the living Christ who points us to the loving God. And that’s what makes this month’s big celebration truly worth celebrating.

Advent greetings, and have a Merry and Joyful Christmas when it comes.

Robin Hill

The Young Church

Longniddry Church has two groups aimed at our varied age groups of young people: Sunday Club if you're between 3 - 11 and creche for anyone under 3. New members are always welcome so please just come along at the first service (9.45am) and see what we have to offer. And.... watch out for Messy Church!

We are always in need of extra helpers (and it doesn't have to be every week!!) If you would like to volunteer to help with a group, please contact Kerry Reilly (853201) or email Messy Church
