This special time of year we think a lot about God coming to earth to dwell among us. He came in a form—a baby—that would be unthreatening to everyone. After all, who could possibly feel intimidated by a new-born child? When we truly rise and follow the star to the manger, it changes our lives in unexpected ways. This Christmas season may you take the light of Jesus into your hearts and let it shine to illuminate the path for others. Merry Christmas! -Rev. Jan Parke
