The Fifth Day of Christmas

Listen to the Podcast.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…….five golden rings.

True ministry goes far beyond the giving of gifts.  It requires the giving of self.  That is the way of Him who did not cling to his priveleges, but emptied himself to share our struggles.  When God’s way becomes known to us, and practiced by us, hope emerges….

Henri Nowen, Gracias!  A Latin American Journal

What he’s talking about here is real hope, hope in the Lord.  Not the cheap, empty, political hope that politicians promise as a means of winning elections.  This is the sure hope of a life in paradise after an earthly life following the teachings of Christ.

As the secular world stumbles forward believing that Christmas is over, we continue to revel in the true hope promised by the Son of God.
