Christmas Greetings 2021 from Pastor Jon
Greetings on behalf of the Enright family!
As each year passes and Christmas increasingly becomes a celebration of lights and warm feelings, we are reminded with new awe of the profound significance of the season. Paul writes of Christ:
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation… All things were created by him and for him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together…For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things… (Col. 1:15-20).
We don’t generally think of this passage in relation to Christmas, but it does express beautifully the incredible truth behind the serene portrait of mother Mary cradling her infant child. All of reality converges in that quiet scene. This infant child is the creator of the universe, the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End! (Rev. 22:13).
So it is with true wonder and amazement that we celebrate with you the birth of the child who came to reconcile all things to God! All things are his, and in him all our hopes are realized!
