VIDEO: Father Jonathan Morris on the Essence of Christmas

In Father Jonathan Morris’s Christmas message, he reflects on the idea that God so loved the world that He humbled Himself by giving us His only Son in a form that we would more openly welcome Him: in the form of a baby – a baby who reminds us of how good humanity can be, who pushes us toward getting in touch with the “better angels of our nature,” and who ultimately redeems us.

Human history is full of examples of people doing things their way instead of God’s way. This Christmas, follow God’s way and you will be led toward the light of life, the light of Christ.
