For many years people lived in darkness. Wars raged, chaos ensued, and man created unspeakable evil against other men. Though much progress has been made; even in today’s world it sometimes seems that the world has lost its way.
But then we remember that 2000 years ago a light split the darkness and through it came an outpouring of love and hope. Although we have surrounded it with all our customs and rituals it remains the underlying reason and truth.
And so, once every year as we come together to celebrate that light and the hope it continues to give the world we must continue to strive to live each and every day by the light of Christmas.
