What a year it has been for us here at SEBA, the deaths of Brian Hasler (the Company Secretary) and David Burr (the Treasurer) dominated the start of the year and has meant a lot of readjusting throughout the year. There is however, a new Treasurer in post with Malcolm Browning and a job description ready for a new Company Secretary. For me there have been a lot of changes as well with a house move that seemed to take for ever (grateful thanks to those who let me stay at their house for 3½  months over the summer) and a new church to settle into.

Sometimes it’s not until you are in the midst of a lot of change that you appreciate once again that our God is the same yesterday today and forever. Certainly for me this year He has once again proved to be that solid rock which my life is built upon.

So here we are on the brink of celebrating one again that cosmic event that changed everything for all time, the arrival of the long awaited Messiah, who’s birth death and resurrection give us life. We never know what’s around the corner, and that is very definitely the case in our country at the moment so let’s make this a time, when in an uncertain ever changing world those around us can see the love of a God who remains totally faithful, constant and never changing.

On behalf of the SEBA team may you know the abundant love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit this Christmas, and be ready for whatever changes may be on the horizon for 2019.
