At last month's Diocesan Convention, Bishop Yvette Flunder taught us a simple song during her Keynote Address.
That song is a perfect way to begin this New Church Year and to accompany us on our journey toward Christmas:
If in your heart you make a manger for his birth
Then God will once again become a child on earth.
The words were written by a 17th century Roman Catholic priest who grew up as a Lutheran. Click here for his fascinating story.
During this Holy Season, may Jesus, whose Second Coming in power and great glory we await, make us steadfast in faith, joyful in hope, and constant in love.*
