Merry Christmas 2020



I know that 2020 has been rough on all of us in so many ways.  For the last nine months we have been living in anxiety and isolation.  

But today is a reminder that the Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.  So, as Linus reminded us, these are the words that bring us hope this day:

Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock. 
The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.

The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.

For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.

And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
