It is that time of year again, Christmas. No matter how old I get, and I am getting older, I still have that child inside that looks forward to this time. People act a little nicer, bright lights start popping, and schedules get really busy. As you will read through the newsletter we have our usual activities going on with Christmas and a few new ones. There just isn’t another time of year quite like this. It is also the perfect time for Christians to share our faith. You don’t have to look for ways to bring Christ into conversations. Everywhere you turn there’s a chance for a “Merry Christmas” and with that why for you it is a merry Christmas, birth of my Lord and Savior. That doesn’t mean we have to refuse to put up Christmas lights or trees, but in all we do we see a greater reason than just gift giving or good will to men. The greatest gift given was the first Christmas when God gave his son into our world, who then lived and died for us. The first good will to men was given by the angels announcing the birth to certain shepherds gathered out in the field. The brightest Christmas light wasn’t hanging on a house, not even the star in the sky at his birth, Jesus himself is the light. We have opportunities at this time to keep Christ in Christmas. Use them well, and by the way “Merry Christmas.”
