In a few minutes we’ll be heading off to my sister’s faraway and hard-to-find house for Christmas dinner, via the Road of Death, the Garden State Parkway. Please pray for us to get there and back without any harrowing adventures.
But what really matters today (and on all the other days) is this:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-5,14
You servants of Satan, who misgovern the nations and feed your people’s souls to the Devil, the light that shineth in the darkness will destroy you and erase your works: for the Lord hath spoken it.
