"Today a light will shine upon us, for the Lord is born for us; and he will be called Wondrous God, Prince of Peace, and Father of future ages; and his reign will be without end" (Isaiah 9:1,5 and Luke 1:33).
Just as our children demonstrated in their programs, celebrating the Nativity of the Lord gives us the opportunity to return to the true spirit and joy of this blessed season. The danger is for us to get too caught up into the commercialized holiday that we forget the heart of what we celebrate! Let's make it a time of faith and love, announcing to the world the great love and mercy of God! Only then can we discover the true spirit of Christmas!
Wishing you each a blessed Christmas!
