Christmas: a time for hope and love

2020 has been a year that none of us will forget. After fires, flood and drought, our country was hit by COVID-19 and the impact to our way of life was significant. 

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity for families, friends and neighbours to come together and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and Australia’s Christian heritage. It also a time to be grateful for the blessings of peace and prosperity we enjoy as a nation.

In this unprecedented year thank you to all Australians for the perseverance, sacrifice and good spirit you have shown to get our country through in better shape than almost everywhere else. It is more important than ever to celebrate the hope of Jesus Christ.

Finally, on behalf of my family, Amelia, Jack, Lachlan, Thomas and Jonathan we wish you and your family a happy and holy Christmas, and a safe and prosperous New Year.
