It seems that the world is a different place this Christmas as to what it was last year. And it seems with every year we learn of new heartaches and atrocities that would have been averted had genuine love and peace been practised. Tolerance, forgiveness, hope, understanding, peace and love are all God-given character qualities that are worth hanging on to in a mad, mad, world. It’s good to remember that the greatest we can hope for is the prevailing of God’s goodness over injustices, violence and evil. The Angels said to the Bethlehem shepherds on that first Christmas night, “Peace and goodwill to all mankind”. Our greatest gift from God was revealed that night, Jesus, Prince of Peace.
Michael loved peace and pursued it, and wherever he travelled he loved to spread goodwill. He waved his Nation’s flag too, he was proud to be Australian, for to be Australian still means freedom. But not all people are free this Christmas, so our hearts and prayers go out to those trapped in a Nation of evil leaders, or of famine, or plagues, and those universal families trapped in a household without love. So this Christmas, help to “keep the peace” and never lose hope in God’s gift. We all at www.michaelhutchence.org wish you a peaceful and loving “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”. Whatever your faith or belief, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, we say to you all, “Love, peace, and goodwill to all humankind”. …and Merry Christmas TIGER!!
