Wesley Impact! TV: Christmas at Wesley Mission
Christmas is a special time of the year at Wesley Mission, and in today’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner interviews two members of the Wesley Mission team, Rev Kamaloni Tu'iono and Mrs Carol Garner.
Rev Garner also shares some of his personal reflections on travelling to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. While this little town has changed since that first Christmas, it remains a place of significant historical and spiritual importance over 2,000 years later.
Plus, the talented Francine Bell performs a stirring rendition of the classic John Newtown hymn, Amazing Grace, accompanied by the Wesley Impact! band.
Interview: Rev Kamaloni Tu'iono
Rev Kamaloni is a congregational life minister and relatively new member of the Wesley Mission team, and said, “Christmas is a time to share the love of Christ and peace with the people in a community”, said Rev Kamaloni.
Interview: Carol Garner
This love for the wider community is shared by Mrs Carol Garner who will be welcoming many local people into Wesley Mission on Christmas day.
Mrs Garner said the events are about “feeling that connectedness, that feeling of warmth and love, and the fact that you really matter to someone.”
Guest performer: Francine Bell
This week on Wesley Impact! TV, Francine Bell celebrates God’s love for us at Christmas by singing the well-known John Newtown hymn, Amazing Grace, accompanied by the Wesley Impact! band.
Keith's message: Bethlehem
Rev Keith Garner reflects on the significance of Bethlehem, that small town where God entered into our world in the person of Jesus. Rev Garner visited Bethlehem and said:
“When you mention the name Bethlehem, even in the world today, when you go to places with people with different cultures and languages, they will remember it as the place where Jesus Christ came into this world to offer hope, to offer purpose, and to offer peace.”
