From Seattle Prep's "A Journey Through Advent 2018" message for Christmas Day, written by Brian Mack, Director of Community Ministry, and his son Quinnan, a freshman at Prep:

"Celebrate and Rejoice - for he is born today! Let Jesus come into your heart anew! God wants us to believe and to truly embrace the fact that light overcomes the darkness. If we love bravely, like he loved, God prevails. Love wins."
