December Go! Sign eNews 2010

Welcome to the last eNews of 2010… 2011 here we come!
If you are in the UK, as we are, you will be feeling the full force of the winter weather. Snow looks very pretty on a Christmas card, but is not so much fun if you need to be out and about in it.

However, there is, of course, lots to look forward to this month and Advent is now upon us. As you look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus, don’t forget to be ready for His return. As the Bible says, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son but only the Father….Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”
Matthew 24:36 & 42.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and may God bless you in the coming year.

As we mentioned last month, there are plenty of interesting articles about Christmas in our next Go! Sign magazine, so why not take out a subscription or treat someone else to a subscription as a Christmas present.
