PASTOR'S DECEMBER GREETING:
Jesus said, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35, NRSV) As followers of Christ, we know that the hope, love, joy and peace of Christ, that we celebrate through Advent and Christmas continue to live in our hearts throughout the year, as we love and serve God and others every day, through every season.
American author and theologian Howard Thurman reminds us of our calling as Christ’s disciples in his poem, “And Now the Work of Christmas Begins”
“And now the work of Christmas begins:
When the angels’ song can no longer be heard
When the manger is empty,
The star gone
When the shepherds are back
On the hillside
And the astrologers have returned to the East….
The work of Christmas begins….
To find the lost,
To heal the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nation,
To bring peace
Among the people,
To make music in the heart.”*
Friends, I look forward with joy and anticipation to walking the disciple’s path, and continuing the work of Christmas with you through 2021!
Your Sibling in Christ,
