Christmas 2010

December 19, 2010

"For all the boots of the tramping warriors and all the garments rolled in blood shall be burned as fuel for the fire." Citing these words from Isaiah 9:5 – included as part of the first lesson for Christmas Eve -- Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori writes in her 2010 Christmas message, "The coming of this prince of peace will mean the end of all signs of war and violence. An occupied people will finally live in peace, without anxiety about who or what will confront them the next time they go out their front doors." Jefferts Schori’s message is the text of Episcopal News Weekly bulletin inserts for Sunday, Dec. 19 (also appropriate for use on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day).
