Christmas 2003


Dear Friend,



So justice is driven back,
and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.
Truth is nowhere to be found,
and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice.
He saw that there was no one, and he was appalled that there was no one to intercede;
so his own arm worked salvation for him,
and his own righteousness sustained him.

Isaiah 59: 14-16 NIV



But the angel said to them,
"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be to all people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ, the Lord...
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests"

Luke 2: 10,11,14 NIV



Jesus said to them:
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth."
After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes,
and a cloud hid him from their sight.

Acts 1: 8-9 NIV

Wishing you a joyous Christmas celebrating God's provision for our every need through His Son, Jesus Christ, and a meaningful new year as we seek to fulfill Christ's mission for us by...

Living in His-Story,
