Star Hill:

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas

 Brothers and sisters, tradition has added that on the night when Christ was born, there was silence in all the land. It does make complete sense for there to be silence just before The Word was born! This Christmas Day, I encourage you to allow some silence in your space. Even amidst your many preparations and gleeful anticipation, for 10 minutes or even an hour, give your mind some silence. Ensure for yourself that this Christmas, the Word of God once again has been born. We pray that this time of year for each of you be one filled with joy and laughter, but mostly reflection on the gift God gave to the world. Let us pray one for another because the holiday time can be bittersweet for those without, for those in mourning and for those dealing with grief.

God bless each of you, and Merry Christmas — Rev. Spell & Family
