IN the middle of all the glitz and
glitter of the Christmas season we
often find the unimposing but
tranquil scene of a baby in a
Tucked away in a shop window,
someone's front yard or on a Christmas
card, is what has become readily
recognised as the symbol of a Christian
For some it's just a myth, to others it
creates anger and drives a politically
correct conversation, but to millions of
people around the world it speaks of
one of the most significant moments in
the world's history.
For that latter group of people,
Jesus is not just any ordinary baby
born to a young couple in a foreign
Prophesied all through scripture over
a period of 4000 years this little baby,
the long-awaited Messiah, carries all

Since our forefathers, Adam and Eve,

Religious systems have largely failed
the human race and have led them away
from God rather than to Him.
However, in the two most well-known
names given to Jesus we see clues as
• The name Jesus means 'Saviour'.
The announcement went on to say
"for He will save His people from
their sins". Since then, millions of
people have experienced the freedom
of forgiveness of sins.
• Immanuel was a further name
attributed to Him. It means 'God
is with us'. Every other religion
has man trying everything to reach
God, but Christianity reveals a God
willing to stoop to man who could
not reach Him any other way.
So this baby was not just a baby,
but the carrier of a message for which
we had all been waiting: God to come
to us to open a door of relationship with

commercialisation, the manger scene
becomes my favourite because of the
hope it brings to us all.

Marley and Me
Channel 9, 7pm, Saturday
This film is about a cute, little
puppy. Are you sold yet? Thought
you would be.
But, seriously, this movie follows
two newlyweds who purchase a
mischievous golden Labrador pup
and their story of the troublesome
dog-turned valued member of their
Definitely a great feel-good movie
to slump down on the couch with
a bowl of popcorn and have a
relaxing night full of laughs (and,
maybe, some tears).
Home Alone 2:
Lost in New York
Channel 11, 6.30pm, Sunday
This instalment may not be as good
as the ultimate Christmas movie,
Home Alone, but the sequel gives
a substantial nod to classic 1990s
movies and the genius of former
child star Macaulay Culkin.
A year after Kevin (Culkin) was
left home alone and had to defeat
a pair of incompetent burglars, he
accidentally finds himself in New
York City, and forced to stop them
again; this time, from robbing a toy

more; the show's tagline, "every
sentence is a story", sums up this
epic saga more effectively.
Spoiler alert: You will get attached
to the characters, bad things
will happen and you will be left
devastated. But you'll always want
more -- I challenge you to watch
