There is no more significant time than now for all of us to count our blessings, to be thankful that hope springs eternally from
the Christmas message and in the great example of the life and death of Christ.
Because God gave to the world His Only Son, there is for all men the promise of a greater and better tomorrow.
This is the season of peace. Christmas brings pause, never an end to the many ills, the many weaknesses of a human world. It
will bring a total peace only when all men accept the Spirit of Christ and make Christmas a year-long observance.
For Christians, it is a time of true faith.Bach in his own way can renew strength and courage in the quiet stillness of a church, in
the darkness of a solitary room, in the hustle and bustle of the crowd. Let us reach out for the hope and joy that symbolizes the
Christmas Spirit.There is no better time to find the peace and faith that can be ours .
