"For unto us a child is born..."
Wait, us who? In a world divided by borders, languages, politics, and preferences, it can be easy to forget that the us is all of us. This Advent and Christmas season, we need a reminder of how big that us is! As we prepare and celebrate the birth of Christ, we'll share stories and hear the Scriptures read by missionaries from 5 different continents to 5 different continents (see below). Perhaps we'll catch a vision of "peace on earth and goodwill towards all people," and that the light of Christ is shining from everywhere to everywhere.
