Our Wondrous Light

A Child Is Born

For the child born in that humble manger grew up to be Emmanuel, “God with us.” He is not a distant memory, a fading star in the annals of history. He is here, in the midst of our very own darkness, the embodiment of hope amidst the flames.

He is our Mighty God, the Prince of Peace, the Wonderful Counselor, the Everlasting Father. He walks with us through the valleys of the shadow of death, his light a shield against the darkness, his love a balm for our wounded hearts.

And that light cannot be dimmed. It burns in the acts of compassion that defy the shadows, in the whispers of comfort that soothe the afflicted, in the unwavering pursuit of justice that tears down the walls of division.

This Christmas and this new year, let us be the bearers of that light. Let us join churches around the globe and carry it into the streets, into our homes, into the hearts of those lost in darkness, including the very place where Christ first came. Let us be the living testament to the promise that even in the darkest night, the wondrous light of Christ will prevail.

For our wondrous light is not a memory, but a mission. A call to walk in the footsteps of the Prince of Peace, to illuminate the shadows with kindness, compassion, and the unyielding hope that only this night can bring.

For Emmanuel is with us, and in Him, there is always hope.


Merry Christmas
Happy New Year!
