Scripture — Luke 2:10-11 (NRSV)

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Merry Christmas from the De Pree Center!

On this day on which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, we want to wish you a merry Christmas! May you experience God’s love and peace today and in the year to come!

Almighty God, you have given your only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and to be born this day of a pure virgin: Grant that we, who have been born again and made your children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by your Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with you and the same Spirit be honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.

(Prayer from The Book of Common Prayer, Anglican Church in North America (2019).
