Well, almost! Hours are before us now, as we await the hope and blessing of Jesus Christ coming into our lives. I write this forever grateful for what you are in my life. I am blessed by you every day of the year and give thanks for the honor I have of serving as your bishop. I wish for you all in this Christmas season, some refreshment, some deep quality time with family and friends, and some restoration that allows the love of Christmas, the love which is the meaning of this celebration, the love of Jesus so that you may be empowered to share that gift with the world.
