Christmas wishes

To all the Boys, leaders, staff, parents and friends who comprise BB in Queensland may you know afresh this Christmas Season the real joy and peace that comes from knowing the Lord Jesus.  He truly is Immanuel - God with us.

As you relax and rest from a busy BB year, may He re-charge your 'batteries'.  If you are off to PAC19 in January, keep safe, hydrated and have the time of your life.  As you plan an exciting, fun-filled and challenging 2017 Brigade programme do so keeping in mind that Boys' Brigade is all about advancing Christ's Kingdom among Boys and growing a true Christian disciple in each one.

Parents, we thank you wholeheartedly for allowing us the privilege of working with your precious sons throughout 2016 and look forward to doing so further in 2017.

"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east and have come to worship Him ... and when they came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother and fell down and worshipped Him. And when they opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense and myrrh." (Matthew 2: 2, 11).  Like the Magi, may we search with the attitude of wanting to worship the Almighty, and may we each be prepared to lay down our best gifts before Him.  Merry Christmas.
