The Wise Men asked: ‘Where is the child who has been born King of the Jews?” Matt. 2:2 (NRSV)
Dear Family and Friends,
On behalf of your Universal Foundation for Better Living Family, we greet you with thoughts of good cheer, unconditional love and the peace that surpasses human understanding. Thank you for being such a blessing to our spiritual organization. While the Wise Men of old sought out the Christ Child and presented gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, we have found a living example of Christ born in you as evidenced by the many ways your generosity is shared throughout the year. Whether you are leading one of our ministries; offering your gifts, resources and talents in a local ministry or holding the prayer consciousness for the work that we do in the world we say, THANK YOU!
We affirm the birth of the Christ in every soul and trust that God’s peace reigns today for everyone, all the time. May the holy days bless you and may God’s joy fill you on Christmas Day and into the New Year.
Our prayer for you is based on James Dillet Freeman’s work:
A Christmas Prayer
May there always be room in your heart for divinity to find a birthing place. May you be holy as the angels were, faithful as the shepherds were, humble as the cattle were, wise as the Wise Men were. May you have the compassion Mary had and the understanding Joseph had, and may the blessing of the Christ child be yours, not because of his birth night long ago, but because his love is born in you today!
Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year!
Sheila R. McKeithen
