Time really flies when we are about God’s purpose in our lives. It’s hard to imagine that we are already talking about Christmas. We are grateful for God’s care and grace in our church family this year. Jesus is truly our life. God the Father sent Jesus to remind us that he desires to draw near to you and to be with you always. The coming of Jesus was the Father’s message that he will always be with us. May we always remember that this promise of his presence with us was not just for Christmas but for every day. And while we celebrate Jesus this Christmas, my you also find his presence with you into the New Year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
