But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11, NRSV).
From the National Lay Director As we enter the advent season in preparation for rejoicing in our Saviour’s birth, we can be grateful for so many things – Our life, our health and every good thing. As restrictions are reduced, my hope is that families and friends meet each other, rekindle relationships, and celebrate.
“Turn, O LORD! How long? Have compassion on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad as many days as you have afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands—O prosper the work of our hands!” Psalm 90:13-17
