The Gospel accounts of the Nativity offer an incredible message of transcendence amid a world where status, money and power are revered and pursued, says Sky News host Catherine McGregor.
“Christmas Eve is incredibly special regardless of your religious affiliations or traditions or even whether you are an atheist or an agnostic,” Ms McGregor said.
“It is entrenched in our culture as a day when we pause to gather with loved ones, business ceases and the schools are closed.”
Ms McGregor spoke of what Christmas means to Christians, who observe it as the Nativity.
“Even if you think the accounts in the Gospels are fairy stories, they still offer a message of transcendence, three men followed a star to a humble stable in a tiny town called Bethlehem, they found a child was laying in a stable,” she said.
“In a world where status, money and power are revered and pursued, isn’t that an incredible message.”
