From the Rector: Merry Christmas!

The church season that we call Christmas lasts 12 days. During the remaining days of Christmas we can take time to think about what it means to be created as a child of God. God came into the world in the human flesh of the infant Jesus so that we might better understand God's will for our lives. Jesus brings light and renewed life into our lives. We are called to reflect Jesus' light in the world and bring joy and hope to others. I think this is beautifully explained in a wonderful poem by Howard Thurman, "The Work of Christmas":

When the song of the angels is stilled,

when the star in the sky is gone,

when the kings and princes are home,

when the shepherds are back with their flocks,

the work of Christmas begins:

to find the lost,

to heal the broken,

to feed the hungry,

to release the prisoner,

to rebuild the nations,

to bring peace among the people,

to make music in the heart.

Christmas doesn't end when the gifts and decorations are put away. Christmas continues as we work to reflect the light of Christ Jesus in our world. May you be blessed as you go into the world to reflect the light of Christ Jesus and be a blessing to others.

Faithfully,

Mother Carol
