Comfort for Those Grieving

O son of Man!  Thou art My dominion and My dominion perish not; wherefore fearest thou thy perishing?

Thou art My light and My light shall never be extinguished; why dost thou dread extinction?

Thou art My glory and My glory fadeth not; thou art My robe and My robe shall never be outworn.

Abide then in thy love for Me, that thou mayest find Me in the realm of glory.

(Baha’u’llah: The Arabic Hidden Words #14)

Sent to be Wrapped

“In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. (And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:1–14, ESV)

The next time we have a record of Jesus’ being wrapped in cloths is at His burial after His crucifixion which was followed on the third day by His resurrection for the purpose of our salvation.

THANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

WELL DONE, SHERMAN COUNTY! I recently attended a meeting in Moro at the Sherman County Courthouse and while there was able to have a tour given by Sherman County Judge Gary Thompson and Justice of the Peace Ron McDermid.  I was impressed by the care of keeping the historical integrity in the original building and the thoughtful consideration of space and function of the addition.  Realizing that it was a decade-long process and considerable resources were used for the project, I think that Sherman County staff and residents should be proud of the end result.  After the meeting and tour, I went to the Sherman County School as I had made some arrangements to pick up a Christmas tree that they were selling the previous weekend.  From the school front office to dealing with the teacher selling the trees, I was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the school staff. Well done, Sherman County. ~Kathryn Greiner, Mayville, OR 97830 

JOYFUL NEWS!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
