UCAF 2017 Christmas Message

Dear UCAF Friends,

Christmas is a busy time of year for everyone. Gifts to think of purchasing, for loved ones, end of year functions to attend and organising to do. I am one of those people who love writing lists and when we lead a busy life as I have over the past few years, a list is necessary.   I came across a story in a book recently which talks just about to-do lists.

We are into the Christmas season, so I might be forgiven for asking – are you organised yet? I find a to-do list helps and a typical list might go something like this.

Buy presents. Wrap gifts. Shop for food. Make the food. See the lights. 

Now imagine writing that list with the spirit of Christmas in mind. 

Be present. Wrap someone in a hug. Send love. Share food. Make peace. Be the light.

If you do both, then well done. But if you only have time for one list – make it the second one.

On behalf of the UCAF National Committee, may you all have a wonderful Christmas. May you travel safely over the Christmas period, as I have over the past twelve months visiting groups in every State, and may peace rule in your hearts over Christmas and in 2018.
