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.

Joining friends at The Upper Room in morning prayer on Facebook Live has been an anchor in the storm during recent weeks. In the chaos of trying to figure out how to do ministry in strange and uncertain times, it was a compelling call to stop, breathe, listen, and be in community with those who gather "where the world meets to pray." Join us each day for morning prayer.
