From The Pastor...
Did you ever notice how the smile of a little child is able to make even the grumpiest faces light up? Even at those times when we have little else to offer, we can always give love and tenderness. .
God’s love touched the earth with the birth of a child, born in the little town of Bethlehem. In a time of oppression under a foreign power, there was one small place of joy, a little circle of peace in a stable.
When God wanted to reveal the nature of life in all its brilliance and all its beauty, the best way was to provide his Son, who would embody the light that had been given in the past, and also be a source of new light. The baby calls out from within us the lights of compassion and understanding. These emotions have been within us all along, but it took a baby to bring them out. .
As we anticipate and celebrate the birth of Jesus this advent and Christmas season, may the light of his love shine upon us and within us as we gather in worship and fellowship, and as we share the light of Christ with those around us. May you and yours have a most blessed Christmas.
Rev. Janet E. Lewis
