ACHIEVING YOUR RESOLUTION in 2015
Every year millions of people do it - make New Year Resolutions. The most common resolves are to give up smoking or to achieve some planned weight loss. They embark on the enterprise on 1st January, but we all suspect that by the end of the month they'll be back on the cigarettes or have resumed tucking into the burgers.

'Giving is good for you'
Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. It incorporates the basic Christian values of giving and sharing, family and friends. God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son that we might have life, and life in all its fullness. If you recognize Christmas as God giving us His Son, the Saviour of the world - that is His great gift to us all - then we too can see the joy in giving.
