Dear Friends,

 

    Christmas is over folks say but for Christians that couldn’t be farther from the truth. For Christians the celebration of Christmas is inseparable from the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It cannot be separated from his ministry and his call on our lives to be witnesses to his love in the way we live all year long. Prophetic preacher, college chaplain, poet and activist Howard Thurman captures this belief in his poem

The Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and the princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
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 brothers,
To make music in the heart.

 

This is our call and commitment in 2019, to continue the work of Christmas.

I look forward to working with you in the year to come…Pastor Sarah
