“Fear not!”  As Christmas draws near, I can’t help but think about Mary’s joyful anticipation of the birth of her Son.  Although the times of Jesus’ birth were greatly troubling and the life circumstances of Mary and Joseph were complicated, Mary’s anticipation was not troubled, but joyful.  Faith left no room for worry; love left no room for fear.  As it was then, so it is now:  God’s presence fills every space from lowly manger to cosmic starry nights.  May the tidings of this blessed time echo throughout the universe.  “Fear not!  A Savior is born to us.  A Son is given.”

Written by Joanne Paprocki, Director of Curriculum and Instruction
