My Mum passed away a year ago at 98. Not long before, she had magnets made for everyone that said "Christmas is the key to the future' This year It hit me that the Christmas story of a baby born to a homeless refugee family destined to bring A Christmas message, Peace to the earth, changes what we value in this sad old world whatever belief system we follow. Decisions made from a Christmas value base are the key to a future where we care for each other and our aching planet. In these last days of a hard hard year , as the mountains burn around us let us be grateful for the faithfulness of those who live by these Christmas values.
Congratulations Ocean 12 winner of Last Man Stands (LMS) Australian Championship 2019. It still seems impossible to believe that all those years ago this group of traumatised men who played cricket appallingly have achieved so much. They still manage to shelve their worries and fears and show their amazing ability as a team which has rocked the world of 20/20 cricket. They will compete in the World Champs in Sydney in December.
