May the Peace of Christ be with you.
On this day a Savior was given to us. Let us rejoice.
It has been my privilege and pleasure to spend this past year sharing my thoughts with you, and especially hearing from you. I can’t tell you the deep, abiding satisfaction that forging friendships through this blog has brought to me. You, dear reader, are a very real part of my extended family.
And so I truly mean it when I say to you, Merry Christmas.
I’ve given the coauthors the day off, if they wish. Go enjoy your time with your family and friends.
And for those of you in service to our nation, far from home, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and pray for your safe return to home and hearth.
