Christmas

Friday, December 25, 2015

Dear Friend,

Last night we had a wonderful Christmas Eve service. As the world was busy with last minute shopping and general busyness, we gathered to reflect on the birth of a humble child who was and is the Savior. We sang traditional Christmas songs accompanied by the beautiful reflective tones of Albie’s cello. The children listened to a homily about the first Christmas presents, the gifts the magi gave to the child. They held a small piece of pure gold and smelled the fragrance of frankincense and myrrh.

I’m not sure when the focus of Christmas changed from what we give to Christ to what others give to us. But, as I thought about Cornerstone, I realized that what makes our church such a blessing is what so many give to Christ’s church. In serving one another, we serve Christ’s body and thus give gifts to Him. In this way, the lesson the magi taught us of giving gifts to Christ continues to this day.

May the blessing of Christ and His church be your this Christmas Day.
