Better than winning the lottery

A shepherd (looking suscpiciously like Jacob) dropped into the St James's School End of Term service this morning, hot foot from Bethlehem.

He told us about the angel, the news of great joy of a Saviour being born, how the shepherds rushed into town to see the baby lying in a manger.

What a wonderful sight that was - 'better than winning the lottery' said the shepherd.

Then, after a quick change, Jacob himself told us about why God has sent a saviour or rescuer.

If you are drowning you need someone to rescue you. If your house is on fire you need someone to rescue you. If you are a sinner and you've messed up your life, you need someone to rescue you and that is exactly why Jesus came.

We sung some great carols and left rejoicing for the celebration of Christmas and a good rest for the whole school.

A very happy and blessed Christmas to everyone.
