Thanks and Wishes for a Peaceful Holiday
December 3, 2012

"I thank God every time I remember you. And I always pray for all of you with joy. I thank God for the help you gave me while I told people the Good News. You helped from the first day you believed until now. I am sure that the good work God began in you will continue until God completes it on the day when Jesus Christ comes again... This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love; that you will see the difference between what is important and what is not and choose what is important; that you will be pure and blameless for the coming of Christ; that your life will be full of the many good works that are produced by Jesus Christ to bring glory and praise to God.” - Philippians 1:3-6, 9-11; ERV

Sending you wishes for a very merry Christmas. Thank you for your advocacy, prayers and dedication to making a better world possible. As people of faith, we are called to be a bold public voice, setting our sights toward a world in which the common good is upheld, and the marginalized are not forgotten.  We are incredibly grateful for your partnership and your relentless commitment to be that voice. 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season. Have a hope-filled advent, a peaceful Christmas and a very happy new year! We look forward to continuing our efforts in partnership with you in 2012 – take courage in knowing that with God nothing is impossible.
