In anticipation of Christmas


Only 10 more days to go!

"Maligayang Pasko" means Merry Christmas in Tagalog. Here is something you see hanging in a lot of Filipino homes, the "Parol".  It's easy to see why we love parols.  These remind us of the Star of Bethlehem that once pointed 3 wise men to the child King born in a manger.

The star was a bright light that pointed the way to the ultimate goodness of God coming down to be with us, to be Emmanuel.  

It's a challenge to each one of us to be bright lights in an increasingly darkened world.  May we let our lights shine to point the way to fullness of life, the Truth, Wisdom and eternal joy!
