Jesus JOY in the Neighbourhood

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood.”John 1:14 MSG

In Matt & Rachel’s neighbourhood in Leeds, England, 24 homes decided to share in creating an Advent Calendar for the whole community. They each put a display in their window, with a number, and every day a new window is illuminated. People can walk around the neighbourhood and see displays of Jesus’ presence every day.

The one right opposite Matt and Rachel’s house lit up on 4th Dec to reveal ‘Joy’. Every time they look out of their window they see that ‘Joy’  – they can’t escape it!

Maybe that is a reminder to us all of the inescapable promise that the angels declared that is still true for us today:  

‘Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news that will
cause great JOY for all the people.
A Saviour has been born to you;
He is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:10-11
