Our Advent preparations are over! Christmas is here! The light of the world has dawned upon us in Christ Jesus, and we have now entered the 12 day season of Christmas! Joy to the world indeed.
I hope you’re having a wonderful time with family and friends, and that the mystery of the Incarnation, of the eternal Word and only-begotten Son of God is resonating deeply in your midst and in your lives. I loved celebrating with so many of you, your family, and friends Sunday night for our Christmas Eve service. It was beautiful and powerful, humble and simple - much like our savior’s birth in Bethlehem.
Our Christmas celebrations will continue this Sunday, December 31, as we gather an hour earlier at 4 pm. I hope to see you there.
God bless you and Merry Christmas!
