Social Corner
As we come into December, the time we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, for this month I would like to share something I wrote several years ago:
 
Christmas means…
The word of the mighty Prophet Isaiah
Who foretold a virgin would bear a son
Whose name was to be Immanuel
A sign to the world redemption is won.
 
Christmas means…
The prophecy, the Word made flesh
When swaddled in a manger bed he lay—
The Babe for whom the angels sang
The Child who in our hearts would stay.
 
Christmas means…
The Child who grew to be a man
Who on the cross would bear our shame
The promise to all of forgiven sin—
To all who believe upon His name.
 
May you all be blessed this Christmas season….
from the Windcrest United Methodist Women
