Christmas at All Saints peckham, 2021 - LOVE CAME DOWN

Love came down square

This Christmas...

There is a Love that opens its arms wider than even our favourite auntie.
There is a Love that persists longer than any hunt for the perfect gift.
There is a Love that lifts us higher than even our frosty breath rising as we carol our hearts out.
There is a Love that goes deeper than any pit we find ourselves in –including those we’ve dug for ourselves.

And the best news about Christmas is that this Love came to meet us. He came not in military fatigues to scare us, or a judge’s wig to condemn us. He came not towering over us to bully us, or wheedling alongside us to trick us. He came as a vulnerable baby boy, laid in a temporary bed, born in poverty, to come alongside us in our sorrows as well as our joys.

Love came down at Christmas – and we get to meet Him in Jesus.

Rev. Jenny Dawkins, associate vicar of All Saints Peckham
