Aren’t you glad we can end the year with the celebration of the birth of Christ? Scripture reminds us: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
