Christmas Letter from Bishop Gainer 2019

Dear Friends in Christ,

As Advent hymns give way to Christmas carols, we cannot help but think of the song of the angels at Bethlehem 2,000 years ago: “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men  (Luke 2:13-14).” It is a scene that returns again and again to our imaginations as we sing the music of this holy season to remind ourselves of the promise of Christmas.
