MAY YOUR DAYS BE MERRY AND BRIGHT

During this holiday season, we at the Maine Council of Churches wish you and your loved ones the Advent blessings of hope, peace, joy and love. We pray for the families, congregations and communities of Maine: that our hope for a better tomorrow is sustained, that our homes and streets are peaceful and safe, that the joy in our hearts is sheltered and nurtured, and that love of neighbor shapes both the gifts we receive and those we give. In this bleak midwinter, when earth stands hard as iron, and water like a stone, when snow is falling, snow on snow on snow, let us remember together that astonishing wonders can unfold in the unlikeliest of places, against all odds, and let us repeat that sounding joy to the world!
