Majesty and Power that Transformed the World: Bishop Shannon’s Christmas Message

“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7

On this holy night, Jesus came into the world in the most ordinary place, in the most ordinary way imaginable. Out of a manger in that far corner of the Roman Empire came majesty and power that transformed the world.

If God could do that in Bethlehem, what might God do among us?

Like Mary, let us ponder in our hearts the blessing of Emmanuel, God with us, and in us.

May God’s blessing be with each of you and those whom you love this Christmas season.

Peace & Blessings,
