Merry Christmas 2020
The Centre for Christian Studies wishes you a spirit-filled Christmas. For many of us, this holiday will be different from the celebrations of past years. Whatever shape the season takes for you, we wish you peace, and joy, and love, and hope. And all good things for the new year.
The CCS offices will be closed from December 24th to January 3rd. Someone will be checking the mail, in case you’re wondering about an end-of-year donation. (You can also donate online through CanadaHelps.)
Comfort, O comfort my people,
says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that she has served her term,
that her penalty is paid,
that she has received from the Lord’s hand
double for all her sins.
A voice cries out:
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together,
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
