Take A Moment by Sanctuary First

In and around the manic rushing around of the ‘countdown’ to Christmas, we are encouraging you to take a series of moments – simply to be. To take a break from the preparation, shopping, cooking, wrapping, stressing, and juggling of calendars and relationships.

Christmas can be hectic, overwhelming and demanding. It can be a time of conflict as well as celebration. A time where special memories are made but also when painful ones are remembered. There is a lot of pressure around Christmas to meet the expectations of family, colleagues, society and even the supermarket. It can be an endurance test, always asking you to be one step ahead. Are you having the perfect Christmas? Have you got it sussed? Have you nailed it?

The rushing around and juggling around Christmas can seem like a world way away from that first Christmas, the ‘reason for the season’, but in fact the first Christmas wasn’t gentle, calm and restful. With its stresses, upheavals and logistics to negotiate, it was probably a lot closer to our 21st Century Christmas than it would first appear.

The young couple, Joseph and Mary, were what we’d call today ‘internally displaced people’ who were having to confront the reality of childbirth on the move. They were victims of the arbitrary actions of a distant and unaccountable political regime. They were like many young people throughout history and around the world to the present day. They had to struggle with dangerous travel, temporary shelter, and persistent hunger… while at the same time getting to grips with parenthood.

Fantastic start to the Christmas Celebration 2017

Fantastic start to the Christmas Celebration 2017

There was a superb start to the Christmas Celebration 2017 presentations with Ayr on Saturday night, 2 December at the Newton Wallacetown Church in Main Street, Ayr.

Andrew Polson commented: “What a fantastic start to Christmas Celebrations 2017 in Ayr.  The Newton Wallacetown Church was packed out and the Celebration Choir for a first night it was superb.

During the song ‘Emmanuel’ I was so moved I virtually could not conduct.  You all bless me so much, and the wonderful message is why we do what we do. Thank you!”

Phil McAnespie commented on FB: “What a fantastic night. The choir are amazing and a credit to the work Andrew puts in with them. So looking forward to the Royal Concert Hall event.”

The presentation now moves on to Edinburgh in the heart of the capital at the Assembly Rooms in George Street on Saturday 9 December. Again, the advice is to get your tickets now for this celebration of the Christmas message.

And then to Glasgow, the Revival FM Christmas Celebration presentation is on Monday 18 December 2017 at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Main Auditorium at 7.30pm. So far, 2,000 people are attending, so, not many seats available. Book NOW!

This is an invitation to join Revival FM and the Celebration Choir and Concert Orchestra for this, the 7th Annual Christmas Celebration.
