Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve here… Why a tree with lights? The traditional practice of decorating a tree originated in medieval Germany. It was an attempt to combine a few Christmas symbols:
By the 16th century, these symbols were combined into one, allowing the Christmas tree to take on spiritual symbolism, which would be explained to family, friends, and neighbours.
May you and your family experience a blessed and joyous Christmas! May the next couple of weeks be a time of making good memories as we celebrate the arrival of the Christ Child.
HAVE A BLESSED MERRY CHRISTMAS!
“Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
Trust you have a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and New Years. I’ll be back in touch on January 9, 2017… Happy New Year on behalf of the entire Fellowship National Staff!
Have a blessed week,
