"For a child is born to us, a son is given to us . . .” – Isaiah 9:5
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As Christmas approaches the days grow darker. In the Holy Land there is war and wrath. The culture in which we live seems increasingly focused on the material things of the world. We look around and see those who are physically and spiritually hungry, thirsty, naked, ill, and imprisoned. It can seem as if the darkness is oppressive.
