With whom do we personally meet in a holy way? A medieval Estonian poem tells about Jesus coming to Estonia to walk among her people. His footsteps become holy places amongs the people and on the land. The location of His steps became holy because He brought the holiness of heaven down to earth.

The place in Bethlehem however is not the only place where Jesus walked and where He has left His Heavenly holy footprints. Jesus walks among us today. Do we recognise Him who has come from heaven to be amongs us. We meet with Him in a special holy way in church. Especially during the Christmas service. All Christmas hymns that we sing tell us that He has come. Sometimes it seems that songs about Santa Claus are more real to people than hymns about Jesus. Think about it, about whom you have told more to your children and grandchildren: Jesus or Santa Claus. The heavenly coming of Jesus should win over all questioning and doubting especially during the holy Christmas service When we sing “Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King. Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room, and heav’n and nature sing.” This new born King is Jesus Christ.
As your pastor and fellow Christian I wish you, dear friends, a blessed Christmas with Jesus and a healthy and blessed year of the Lord 2019.
