To Our Dear Friends
It is so good to be able to greet you during this wonderful season. There is a Christmas Carol that we will be hearing during this time of celebration titled, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." The words of this carol certainly ring true because it truly is the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
During this time of celebration many things will take place, such as decorating, gift giving, feasting, special programs to attend and spending time with family and friends. Other than the resurrection of Christ, there is no other time of year that is equivalent to Christmas.
Many folks have tried to turn Christmas into something other than what it is; but no matter how they try, the Spirit of Christmas cannot be anything other than the Spirit of Christ. He is the epitome of LOVE, JOY, PEACE and HOPE. Praise God!
There is nothing more exciting than the wonderful atmosphere that surrounds this special holiday. The enemy would love to stop the celebration of the birth of Jesus, but let us be determined to celebrate that much more and let the world know how grateful and happy we are that we have a loving Savior who came down from heaven to save mankind from their sins.
Let us sing the songs that tell of His birth; let us decorate and send cards all around the earth.
Let us spread love and joy and peace to all men, and give hope to those who are without a friend.
Let us show that Christmas is not just a Holiday, but a miracle of God that was sent our way
May this be the best Christmas ever for you and your family as you invite the Spirit of Christ into your heart and into your home.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Pastor Jerry and Lorinda
