As we mark the transforming season of Christmas, many gather with their faith communities, many gather with their families, many seek to commune with the Lord themselves in a special way, gathering only with the saints who join us in spirit in our adoration.

We give great thanks for the birth of the Lord, into our world, into our lives, in all the broken-ness and messiness that that implies.  Born of the Father before all ages, the Lord, in His love for us, has become born into time.

We wish you great joy in this season, and invite you, your ministries, and all Christians gathering to join us in prayer, that this season may bring us peace, that this season may make us peacemakers.
