Nearly 2,000 years ago a young religious scholar, the son of a carpenter, chose to stand apart from the established religious leaders of the day. Building upon a heritage of moral virtues, he emphasized love for all, including thy enemies, as well as hope and compassion.
On this day, December 25, 2014, we are honored to celebrate his birth. In so doing, let us share with each other his message - that good will prevail over evil, that peace can and will be accomplished, and that love will conquer all.
Let us also remember his teaching - that understanding and goodwill to all leads to treasures more lasting than any accumulation of gold or silver.
May peace, love and kindness find you on this special day. Merry Christmas.
