Christmas thoughts

"We all come with different personal feelings to the Christmas 

festival. One comes with pure joy as he looks forward to this 
day of rejoicing, of friendships renewed, and of love...Others look for a moment of peace under the Christmas tree, peace from the pressures of daily work...Others again approach Christmas with great apprehension. It will be no festival of joy to them. Personal sorrow is painful especially on this day for those whose loneliness is deepened at Christmastime...And despite it all, Christmas comes. Whether we wish it or not, whether we are sure or not we must hear the words once again: Christ the Savior is here! The world that Christ comes to save is our fallen and lost one. None other." --Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Bonhoeffer always has something good to offer.
