Inspired by polar night
This Christmas series is inspired by polar night when sun is so low and evenings so dark and long... Light of hearth of the house and family warms.
The holy couple has made a long way and the place where they had to give birth was not hospitable for Mary and Joseph. In this darkness the Light was born to the world — Jesus Christ. Emmanuel — God with us! His light fills our life.
May this Light shine in your hearts making warmth for our neighbors.
"And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
(Luke 2:10–12 ESV)
Savior is born!
In him was life, and the life was the light of men... The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it... The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world... And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:4,5,9,14 ESV)
Born in Bethlehem
And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
(Luke 2:6–7 ESV)
