Dear Friends in Christ:

Merry Christmas! Christmas is a day for us to remember God’s merciful love. Through Jesus, we come to know who God really is—He is Love. After our weeks of preparation in Advent, we have finally come to this day when we gather with family and friends to hear the words of the angel of the Lord who says “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.”

We gather here in this holy place to celebrate the birth of our Savior; the Light of the World, the Prince of Peace, the Savior of the World, Emmanuel (God is with us). At Christmas we celebrate that in the person of Jesus, God humbled himself and became flesh. God-made-man enters the world as a newborn baby.

This is the Good News we gather to celebrate today! I thank you for your pr
