At Christmas, all roads lead home (Marjorie Holmes, late columnist and author)

It’s just one week till Christmas, and many folks are planning their trips “back home” to join their families. Christmas stirs many memories, and we often long to bring back those good ol’ days. But, it isn’t families or memories, as pleasant as they are, but the coming of Jesus that is central to Christmas joy.

For God … made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)
