Merry Christmas! As we gather this Christmas Day, we believe that it is God who has drawn each of us here. This morning we remember and celebrate the nativity of Christ and the mystery of the incarnation. We identify with the angels who proclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest”; with the shepherds, who were afraid but nevertheless offered worship; and with Mary, who pondered the meaning of all these events in her heart. Our prayer for you is that you would soak in all the blessings and gifts our God offers as you worship Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
