“Bethlehem is the call to come and see what God has done—and what God can do—in our lives. Bethlehem is the call to choose Jesus as our guide and our destination.”
—Todd Outcalt, Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem*
“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son
and they shall name him Emmanuel,”
which means, “God is with us.”
—Matthew 1:23, NRSV

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
