Merry Christmas!

Jesus is happy to come with us, as truth is happy to be spoken, as life to be lived, as light to be lit, as love is to be loved, as joy to be given, as peace to be spread.

-St. Francis of Assisi

Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus when he crossed the great boundary of heaven and earth to be with us and share in our humanity. What a joyous, world-changing miracle!

Thank you for journeying with us as we follow Christ’s missionary example. Thank you for sharing in our relational-based ministries as we strive to be love, give joy, and spread peace around the world.

Christmas blessings to you and yours!
