The manger is the central piece of the Christmas story and it is loaded with meaning and message, consolation and fruit for us… It is there in the stable, in its humble feeding trough that we find the fulfillment of our longing and hope. In that poverty our Savior, our Light and Peace, reveals to us the Good News he came to bring. He came into this world as he would leave it – humble and dependent upon God.
Wishing the people of South Sudan peace and blessings for this Christmas season and New Year. And wishing you, our friends and donors, every good wish for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
