The part of the Proclamation that rings out true and clear to me most of all is that families are ordained of God. I believe in the love, trials and blessings of relatives. This Christmas, I’d like to extend a warm cup of cheer to you and your kin. May Father Christmas bring you a wonderful time with you and your family this season. Of course there is heated debate over the impact that same-sex marriage will have on the family, but I’m putting that aside (at least until Boxing Day) to say simply that it’s wonderful to love and to be loved and I wish it for all of you, wherever you are.
