The amazing power of the cross and the manger. Last night at our Christmas Eve service a teenager gave her life to Christ! I too prayed with a Muslim who acknowledged the awesomeness of Christmas. And Jesus coming to bring PEACE. And in this past week the people of Faith Lutheran Church responded to the Gospel of Jesus through generous giving by eliminating our deficit. Well done good and faithful servants. I am proud to call faith home. And I believe that many of you are as well. May many more come home to faith as well in 2015. A most blessed New Year to all of you. We have much to be thankful for and blessings to look forward to in the new year.
