A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love, blessings, and prayers to you all.

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not:

for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David the Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”

I wish all of you a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

May the child Jesus bestow upon you all the peace and joy of his birth.

Christmas truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. Christmas is a time of spiritual reflection on the important foundations of the Christian faith. It’s also a celebration. It’s when we celebrate God’s love for the world through the birth of the Christ child: Jesus. Jesus is born for us. God sent his only son to be the atonement for all of our sins so that we would not be separated from God.

Jesus – the Gift of Salvation

Christmas truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year! Because when Jesus came, he also left us with the gift of salvation. So, when that precious baby is born and placed in the manger, it wasn’t just another birth. It was the beginning of God’s redemptive plan for humanity. An act He didn’t have to take part in, but one He chose to do out of love.

Celebrate the True Meaning of Christmas

Please, take time – this holiday season – to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas by glorifying the One who gave it all to us. A child was born in humble circumstances and his sacrificial death reflected the same, however, both were significant for humanity. Without the death of Christ, salvation is not possible. So without His birth, neither would be possible. Jesus coming to Earth that night changed everything.

Therefore, it’s a moment we should celebrate with all of our hearts. Certainly, enjoy the parties and food and gifts, but don’t forget to point your heart, family, and those around you to the Christmas’ true meaning: Christ came with a plan for our redemption. I wish you and your family Merry Christmas again…. I will be certainly praying for you that May the joy of Christmas stay with you and into your family

God bless you all.

With lots of love and blessing.

Ever at your service.
