Merry Christmas!

Roger Kuin, a friend from afar, sent us a picture and tale of the ancient English Christmas Kissing Bough.

"In Hoc Anno Domini" brilliantly suggests what Christ's coming meant for the world.

Wherever you may be this Christmas, may you have persons you love around you. If they are far away, may you love and be loved by those near you!

,

Hark! The herald angels sing

"Glory to the new-born King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled!"

Joyful, all ye nations, rise,

Join the triumph of the skies;

With the angelic host proclaim:

"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"

Hark! The herald angels sing

"Glory to the new-born King!"

(Charles Wesley wrote the words. Felix Mendelssohn wrote the music.)

Merry Christmas!
