Christmas Message 2014 from the World Council of Churches General Secretary

From the Rev. Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit:

Adoration of the Magi, He QiDear friends and companions on the journey:

I greet you in the name of Almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! May the blessing of this season of advent – of expectation – be realized in your homes and your communities, and particularly in the lives of those who have to leave their homes in times like this.

This is a time when we are all called to look forward to more abundant expressions of the loving purposes of God:

“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1)
