May your Christmas be one of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love from your friends and neighbours at Kamloops United Church. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and remember those out in the cold this night, the newcomers to Canada who have had to leave their home countries, those we love who hurt with grief, sorrow, addiction and those facing illness and others facing loss of security. We look to the amazing younger generation who are truly emerging as world leaders at so many levels. Kamloops is a wonderful community of generosity and kindness, rich with volunteers, athletes, fine arts performers, faith communities, civic leaders and citizens who care and who respond when there is need. What a wonderful world. Blessings and Merry Christmas.
