Grace and Peace to you.
A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
The wolf shall live with the lamb,
and a little child shall lead them.
They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain.
—Isaiah 11. 1, 6, 9
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all be brings,
risen with healing in his wings.
—Charles Wesley, “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing”
Christ comes not to judge, not to condemn, not to leave anyone behind, but to heal: to heal souls and bodies; to restore relationships, families, communities and nations; to heal the wound between us and God. He comes to remove what impedes our love, to set us free from what imprisons our compassion, to restore our capacity to bless. He comes to make us whole.
What needs to be healed in your life? In your relationships? In your world? Open your heart to the deep, transforming, miraculous healing that Christ brings. The tender child, born among us and within you, brings infinite grace. Awaken your heart to the promise of healing. The Holy Child is coming.
