What an interesting weekend. We are celebrating the 4th weekend of Advent and at the same time the beginning of Christmas. This brings joy to the world: the Lord is near! I want to wish you all a joyful Christmas! On Christmas we are going to hear the story of Jesus' birth. We have heard it over and over, yet our hearts rejoice to hear it again. Our God came to us, not in majesty and glory, blinding us with his brilliance and deafening us with the sound of his voice, rather our God came to us in humility and poverty and simplicity. He showed us, by sharing in our life, that there is goodness in the world he created, goodness in the life he gave us, goodness in all of us and that we are worth saving, even worth dying for. Words alone cannot express the wonders we celebrate this weekend. And so we express our words in song. It is a time for singing. May the birth of our Savior bring love, peace and joy into your hearts and bring unity among your loved ones. Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad!
