Light looked down and beheld Darkness,

"Thither will I go," said Light.

Peace looked down and beheld War,

"Thither will I go," said Peace.

Love looked down and beheld Hatred,

"Thither will I go," said Love.

So came Light, and shone;

So came Peace, and gave rest;

So came Love, and brought Life;

And the Word was made Flesh, and dwelt among us.

REMEMBER IN PRAYER: Don and Sylvia Snure, Billie and Jack Cartwright, Lynda Russell and Marie Orgar. Isabel Taylor is recovering well from her surgery. Becky Morgan was scheduled to come home this past week, but has unfortunately had a major setback.

She has regained consciousness and has been communicating with her parents and the doctors. Beth and Bobby flew down on Wednesday and Beth and Bob will spend Christmas with Becky and Eric. Remember all of these in your prayers and thank God for prayers answered.

ADOPT A FAMILY: The list is posted on the Nursery window for the family that we are adopting to help for the holiday season. It has been suggested that two or three families get together for the gifts for one child and mark their names on the list and then everyone can donate towards the food items. This will help to make the season joyous for this family. The gifts will be delivered on Dec. 23rd.

Luke 2:9-20

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
