Brad Wall’s Christmas message

Seven hundred years before the First Christmas, one of many promises by Old Testament prophets was made about the coming of the Christ.

“For unto us a child is born,” wrote Isaiah, “unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.”

Peace? Isn’t that the promise of Christmas? Not just peace between nations but between each of us . . . toward each of us . . . for each of us.


These are the beginning words of the Christmas message of Brad Wall, Premier of Saskatchewan, which is printed in most newspapers in our province.

We are told that we live in a post-Christian era, a time when most people are not familiar with the Bible and don’t want to hear anything about what it says. Yet for several years now our premier’s Christmas message has had a distinctly Biblical and Christian theme.  Nevertheless, when surveys are done of the population’s approval of government leaders across Canada, Brad Wall’s name usually heads the list.

    Well prayer are cut out of government functions like opening of the House and Senate, or so neutered and watered down they are meaningless, even Air Force Chaplain’s are disciplined for mentioning Jesus Christ in suicide briefings! Makes me glad I’m not an Army Chaplain now they’d have to courtmarshall me to stop it!
