Christmas message from Bishop Gary Gordon
The Gospel Reading from Luke (1:67-79) reminds us that the “dawn from on high will break upon us” as we look to the horizon of hope. As we enter the Christmas Season and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, may we be ever mindful of the ways the Lord manifests the presence of God among us. “O Emmanuel”, Come Lord Jesus!
