“No one ever born has ever had his or own star appear in the sky as a Divine birth announcement. No one has ever had a star appear as a travel guide. . .The wise men from the east not only saw the star and understood its uniqueness, but they also knew its purpose. . .that God had sent His promised gift from Heaven, for they made their journey not as tourists but as worshipers.” (Roy Lessin)
As we journey to Christmas this year, my prayer is that each one of us will travel as a worshiper. All are invited on this journey of faith to follow the star’s light as it guides us to the Messiah who has come to be our Savior. Along the way take time - to hear the joyful song of angels, to stand in awe at the brilliance of the star, to kneel in wonder at the feet of the baby who is God’s gift to all, and to share the Good News that this baby lived, died and was resurrected to transform lives. This Christmas, bring the gift of your heart and your life to the manger and be amazed at the new life you receive by the grace of God. I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
Blessings and Peace.
See you in church!
Ethelyn L. Fulton, Clerk of Session
