Bush Chaplain, Pastor Cain Hartigan, reflects on 2020 and offers his Christmas message to Frontier Services’ supporters.
It has been a hard 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic which we are experiencing and may have to experience for a while longer. It has been a time where we have been physically, mentally and spiritually stretched, not only in our own experiences but hearing the stories of others.
Stories such as the separation of families, financial struggles, loved ones passing and unfortunately much, much more. Our faith had been tested repeatedly. We as Christians must remember that Jesus Christ is with us on this journey. We have not been left alone on this walk even though we feel at times we have.
There is hope ahead and we will all get through this together.
I ask that we do not lose hope, let us pray each day for hope, resilience and compassion. Not just for ourselves but for others as well. For one day we will sit with the Father and feel his grace and His love, and we will bathe in the glory of God’s loving heart.
After you read this, please say a prayer for yourself and for others.
Pastor Cain Hartigan
