“Ye who now bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.”
During this time of joyous festivities, we also take time to remember those who have suffered from violence, those who are poor, and those who are marginalized. The story of King Herod seeking to kill the “holy innocents” reminds us that Jesus came because of the reality of the dark side of life – sin. He came to bring life, joy, and hope. Let us be a Place of Hope and a People of Promise this Christmas season.
