A Message from Rev. Dave
Merry Christmas! I hope the start to the Christmas season brought you moments of peace, moments of delight, and moments of joy. As a reminder, it is still Christmas, and I will wish people a Happy Christmas right up until the Epiphany on January 6th – so let’s celebrate every bit of the festive season! So Merry Christmas!
In Galatians today, we read, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children. And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God.”
Christ is born. The Lord is present. Let us say, Hallelujah!
Happy Christmas to you and yours!
Yours in Christ,
