Christmas is, among many other things, one of the most hopeful times of the year. It’s a season for generosity, reflection and new beginnings. Refugees new to the United States find Christmas to be a wonderful opportunity to connect with their new neighbors, building friendships and understanding that help them find security and peace, often after years of struggle. The mutual gifts that refugees and their new neighbors can offer each other embody the spirit of renewal so strongly tied to this season.
With gratitude and prayers for a joyful new year;
