A light dusting of snow covers the landscape. It's midnight. All is quiet. Church bells ring, breaking the silence. The only people out so late on this night are gathered together in the small community church. A young child runs to a window in the church. Look, look, he calls, it's the Christmas star!
As children count down the days until the wondrous holiday arrives, remember: it's a birthday we celebrate. Wishing you a peaceful, love-filled season. As we prepare to leave the old year behind let kindness and patience fill your days.
Coming together on Christmas Day to worship with family, friends and neighbors reminds us of the reason for the season.
Merry Christmas to all.
