Christmas greetings!  This December we begin our season advent with Hanging the Greens on Saturday the 2nd , we quickly move on to our Paying It Forward Fund dinner on the 7th, our Community Meals every Wednesday this month and then Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, ending the month with worship on New Year’s Eve day.  This season of celebrating God’s gift to us is meant to build within ourselves the blessed assurance of God’s love and mercy.  We remember Christ’s humble entrance into our world, the way which God chose to keep the promises given in Holy Scripture, and the continuing promise of grace.  We accept this gift and have built a family of God here for the purpose of sharing the light of Christ and building each other up in discipleship.  I encourage you all to embrace the Spirit and join hands with your brothers and sisters in Christ as we remind the world of the reason we have a Christmas season.  For those who have lost the meaning of Christmas, let us be ambassadors of the Light.  For those who don’t know God, let us be examples of God’s love.  For those who have no one to celebrate with, let us be their family.  For those who feel unworthy of gifts or love, let us be the ones to love them unconditionally; just as Christ loves us.   Let us welcome all into this house and family of God who seek to live in peace with one another.  In a time when we hear of people needing “safe spaces”, let us recall why we call our worship space a sanctuary, and offer to anyone who is in need a place for them to safely embrace the love God has for us all.  Hear again the words of the angel and heavenly host:

“Do not be afraid, for see-I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.”  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”  Luke 2:10-14.  

Let’s get busy sharing the Good News and Great Joy of Christmas!  Let us give and receive the gift of Peace wherever we go, and may God brighten whatever path you are on with Love and Mercy!  Merry Christmas!
