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.
*Henri J. M. Nouwen, adapted from The Wondrous Mystery: An Upper Room Advent Reader. 2019 Upper Room Books.
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.”
