Advent is a door into a place where everyone is welcome.
This Advent may we be assured of acceptance
as we enter once more into the wonder of salvation's story.

Christmas is a gift of love wrapped in human flesh
and tied securely with the strong promises of God.
It is more than words can tell,
for it is a matter of the heart to receive, believe and understand.
