The Heart of Christmas

Brethren,

Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

We’ve arrived at the most wonderful, and busiest, time of the year! Our churches have already began preparations with the anticipation and excitement of childlike wonder. We willingly participate in church decorating, choir practices, and play rehearsals so we can invite family and friends to come and hear the Christmas story and share in the joy and celebration of our Savior’s birth.

This Christmastime our nation finds itself in a divisive quagmire where our newly elected leadership has the challenge of bringing the American people together and prayerfully set forth a new direction that will change the way we view life here in our homeland.

As people of a loving God, we have the opportunity to bring unity in our communities as we share “THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS”, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. The bible tells us in Luke 2: “11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. During this holy season, I hope each of you is compelled to share this divine love that transforms us in miraculous ways and extend God’s love throughout your community!

May the wondrous spirit of Christmas surround you and your family as we minister His love.   Merry Christmas and may your new year be blessed and miraculous, all glory to God!

Gratefully in His service,

Rev. Ben Refuerzo

IAFB General Superintendent
