Merry Christmas to My Trinity Church Family,

I am so happy that we will be able to spend the Advent Season together this year.   Last year we were apart due to COVID, but this year, thankfully, we can celebrate the birth of Jesus together.

The following poem is one that we should all read and remember that we hold Christ is our hearts every single day of the year.  Christmas is a time for family, friends, good food and presents.  But we must never forget that “Jesus is the reason for the season.”

It Isn’t Far to Bethlehem
J. Harold Gwynne
It isn’t far to Bethlehem
where lies the newborn King;
It isn’t far to Bethlehem
where holy angels sing.
The Wise Men saw the guiding star
that led them where He lay;
the shepherds heard the heavenly song
that brought the better day.
We too may go to Bethlehem
and find the Savior Child;
we too ay hear the angels sing
their hymns of mercy mild.
Our hearts are God’s new Bethlehem,
Where Christ is born anew.
It isn’t far to Bethlehem
If He is born in you.

May your Christmas be blessed with a heart full of blessings to last through the year,

Pastor Steffani
