"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you, He is Christ the Lord" Luke 2: 10-11.
The "Do not be afraid" of the angel on Christmas Eve and the "I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people" announced by heaven's messenger of "peace on earth, to men on whom His favour rests" give every believing heart much
reason for a merry Christmas. The good news of Christmas is worth celebrating for three reasons. It is personal: "I bring YOU."
It is positive: "GOOD news of great joy." And it is universal: "for ALL the people." It doesn't matter who you are, what you've done, where you've been, or where you're headed — this news is for you. We simply cannot mope over the miracle of God's incarnation. God makes our Christmas celebrations complete through the "home" we have with our Christian brothers and sisters at church. It is there we can come together in Word and Sacrament to renew our faith and recall again the magnificence of God's Good New in Jesus Christ. As Christmas carols fill the air with joy and merriment, as the chime of church bell echoes all around, and prayers reach out to God, we wish you a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year 2018.
