Joy to the World, the Lord Has Come!
“We can only love because we have been loved first; we can only bring freedom to others because we have been set free; we can only give because we have been given.”*
We give thanks for the greatest gift of all—Jesus Christ, and we give thanks for you!
May your Christmas season be full of joy and happiness.

"Thank you for the creative teams [of The Upper Room] who are working together to share the power of prayer around the world. You have collaborated with everyone working from our homes to share the gifts of hope, love, grace, and peace." (Written in response to The Upper Room COVID-19 response efforts).
