|Remember the True Reason For The Season|
by Christina Farris 12/01/2016The retelling of the story of Christ's birth is important. Take time to read the story with your family outside of church and discuss the importance of Christ coming. Let us remember the true reason for the season of Christmas. If you do not discuss it no one else will.
|Christmas News 2016|

As another Christmas comes to be, we begin this season with news of another communist leader of a small country called Cuba. Fidel Castro died in November, and my hope and prayers is the work already done between our nation and Cuba is that the talk of freedom remains.
As wild fires plague our world we live in from my own area recent wild fire that did little damage, to the Great Smokies of Tennessee which had great devastation. Once a fire or blaze is started and gets into the tree tops there little anyone can do. When winds pick up it makes it harder for crews to put the fire out. As clean up crews go in to try and clean up what remains so that rebuilding can take place, news of tornadoes across the south came. It seems to be late in the seaso for tornadoes, but my own area had a thunder storm of its own. With the chaos of weather, we can only pray God will have mercy not only on his people but those who yet to know Him and His love. Let us pray for those struck by disasters and loss of life be given the hope and strength of the hope and promises of the reminder of the Christ Child brings each year. Those of us that are blessed let us Thank the Lord for His mercy and grace. If we have the finances to let us help those in areas in need, beyond just praying. If all you can do is pray do so. Also remember those in North Carolina that are still doing repairs after the flood. Those in the west I pray for your safety as well. Another school shooting in the North is only a sign the devil time is growing short and he knows it with each storm that crosses our country.
Let us stand united in prayer this Christmas Season. Nowing Christ mercy is the only thing that will give us peace even in troubless times.
