Merry Christmas from Compass Creative!

As the holiday season approaches and we gather with loved ones to celebrate, we want to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for trusting us to tell your story in the marketplace.

At Compass, we believe in the magic of storytelling, and each December, we celebrate in a special way the greatest story of all.

O holy night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth!
Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
‘Til he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

The story of Christmas cuts through the clamour and noise of polarizing politics, it disrupts the dispatches from foreign battlefields and redirects us from the downward spiral of unrest and violence in our own hearts. Christmas confronts us with exquisite beauty, perfect love and the possibility of peace between men.

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name

The story of Christ's birth calls us to faith, compassion and joy in the simplest and most ordinary of moments and in the darkest of times. Because of Christmas, souls “feel their worth” and the “thrill of hope makes weary souls rejoice”.

Story has transformative power.

The narratives we tell ourselves and each other are incredibly important. We are all messengers of hope or despair. This Christmas, let’s reflect on the story of Christ's birth, His life, and His sacrificial death in our place. And let the wonder of this story fill your hearts with hope, love, and the true spirit of the season.

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night, when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine

On behalf of the entire team at Compass, I extend our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones. Wishing you all a Blessed & Joyous Christmas, and a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
