Consider this quote by Barbie Perks from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“… Christmas 2020 is going to be a very different and extremely difficult Christmas time for a lot of us. There has been so much fear, isolation, illness, death, political, emotional and economic instability in the entire world as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic – can we even begin to imagine a normal/ usual Christmas time? What new insights will we receive when we read the story of the birth of Christ again? How will God use this time to draw us closer to Him?

… May the Lord of Peace grant you peace this advent season – may He inhabit your praises, and bring you joy.”
