Christmas Blessings!

This past Sunday, I was blessed to take part in our church's Christmas Cantata. It was a glorious work, so fun and moving to sing. We presented Darkness Into Light A Christmas Musical Journey by Mary McDonald.

Between songs, we had narrators. One of the readings got me so choked up I could barely sing. I'd love to share that with you as a way to say Merry Christmas!

In Him is life, and that life is the Light of all mankind.

Come to the Light!

His light, which lives in the hearts of all believers, gives life to all things by the power of God, who is in the midst of us all.

Come to the Light!

Holy God, Your visible love to us fills our hearts with joy and wonder. And although our earthly journey sometimes means walking through a valley of darkness, we rejoice that we can always come to Your Light of hope. In this moment, in this place, at this celebration of the incarnation, we sing "Hallelujah" to the Lord of Light!
