The Birth of Love: A Christmas Message

The Birth of Love: A Christmas Message

This year has been like no other. At times it has felt like the world was completely turned upside down. COVID, racism, elections – it has been almost too much to bear.  And yet we know that God is faithful and always near.

“Fear Not!”, said the angels.  Over and over again in the story.  Over and over again throughout scripture.  For unto us a child is born.

We await that coming of Immanuel, God with us, in the form of a helpless and vulnerable baby who knows about turning the world upside down. 

At this Christmas time as we look forward to the birth of love among us once again, we wish you the peace, hope, joy and love that is Christmas.  And we wish you a healthy new year.

~ Don Remick and Marilyn Kendrix, on behalf of the staff of the Southern New England Conference, United Church of Christ
