Good News

A sense of joy and expectation is in each of today’s readings. Even St. Paul tells us that to be a Christian is to be happy. The reason: God the almighty is coming to live amongst us, as human as we are. This is the Good News we are asked to proclaim. A God who is human too, is full of sympathy and aroha for our woes. And for nostalgics, St.John’s gospel, which we used to hear each Sunday, a poetic work, is a revelation and much missed.
