Bread for the Journey

The beautiful story of Jesus birth resounds in chorus throughout the Christmas Season.
Today we are celebrating the birthday of Jesus.
He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords,
who humbly came to earth to be our Savior.


Luke 2:11-20
"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and
lying in a manger."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men
on whom his favor rests."
When the angels had left and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,
"Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened which the Lord
told us about."
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, lying in the manger.
When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had
heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

It is our prayer that you too are celebrating the joy of Jesus birth today.
Just as the shepherds did, we also want to spread this wonderful news.
A Savior is born...His name is Jesus.

From our hearts and home, we wish you a blessed Christmas.
