Merry Christmas from Us!

John filmed the one-minute video below from our room at the Lord Elgin Hotel in Ottawa, Ontario.  The music in the background is, once again, “O Holy Night”, by the Celtic Women, from yesterday’s post.

No Christmas greeting would be complete without pointing to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and the centerpiece of Christ-mas:

“And the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David, there has been born for you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord!'” Luke 2:10, 11

“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, in order that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive adoption as sons (and daughters).” Galatians 4:4, 5

“By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.”  1 John 4:9

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom or all..” 1 Timothy 2:5,6


Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King

Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinner reconciled!”
