Hello Emmanuel,

As we work and play through another holiday season, we are invited to ‘up the ante’ and be happy, joyful, giving, hopeful, prayerful, etc…  Nothing is wrong to fall into the Christmas mood.  Indeed, everything is right with it.  Jesus brings us every reason to experience the joy of life and love.  However, I would go a step further.  Christmas should be a stepping stone to how we live into the entire 2017 year……. with joy and hope and gifts and prayers, etc.  I am glad to be at a church that understands the urgency of living the Christian Faith rather than just celebrating it for a season.  Let’s use another season to be a trampoline into another year.  I’m looking forward to it and I hope you are too.

Pastor Joe
