"Christmas is a time for reconciliation. A time not only for families and friends to come together but also for differences to be forgotten and forgiven. Reconciliation is the product of reason, tolerance and love, and I think that Christmas is a good time to reflect on it.
"It is easy enough to see where reconciliation is needed and where it would heal and purify, for us personally and individually and for state affair, internally in our challenges and also abroad with our peers of the community. Of course, it is not something that is easy to achieve. But things that are worthwhile seldom are, so it is encouraging to know that there are many people trying and I personally think that I should try more.
"The thing that I would most value for us, in our lives apart of micronationalism and within it, for the coming year is reconciliation to be found wherever it is needed. We should remember in this sense that mighty things from small beginnings grow as indeed they grew from the small child of Bethlehem.
"I wish you all a very happy Christmas and may the New Year bring reconciliation between all people."
