Merry Christmas everybody, but don’t forget the “reason for the season” - that 2,000 years ago, God provided the greatest Christmas gift of all - His own Son. Though we incessently rebel against God, and our rebellion mandates a punishment, He entered His own Creation to take that punishment on our behalf. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, was beaten and nailed to a cross for our sake. By turning from our sin & rebellion and trusting in Christ as Saviour, we can be saved from the punishment we deserve. If you have never heard of this before, you can learn more about this Gospel - this good news - here.

I’ve had a great time with my family today, and got quite a few cool gifts, including:

  • Wetshaving gear
    • 1957 Gilette Super Speed (which unfortunately hasn’t arrived from the States yet)
    • Badger hair shaving brush
    • Shaving soap
  • Anime figurines
