Once again in dark December we are called to gather to worship the Child born in a manger Called again, each to remember we belong to one another. None too good or too wild we welcome all - friend and stranger. In prideful falls, we all are sinners in need of this Gift from the Father forgiveness from a baby meek and mild. We walk in Light - darkness no longer. Coming together again in December in unity to remember He is the King of All.
