Merry Christmas

Today is Christmas. It is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. You can read the full story here.

It is a day of celebration. It is also a day to remember how lucky we are and how we need to help others in the world.  Christmas is a reminder for us to be a light in the world. 

I have included a devotion for today. 




Now the Work of Christmas Begins

Now the Work of Christmas Begins


By Howard Thurman

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.
