Christmas Greeting 2014

As we begin the celebration of the 12 days of Christmas I greet my online  network with the universal message of peace on earth and good will to all.
May the ancient story of a child born in occupied territory open our hearts to the work of defending human rights.
May the the image of a family forced to seek refuge and asylum far from their home inform our political choices as citizens of a global village.
May our messages of good wishes and happy holidays not blind us to the work of justice making and non-violence.
May the lights and decorations of the season remind us of our mission to bring light to the darkness and celebration to life.
May our gifting be generous as we remember r those who live in situations of poverty and exploitation.
May the birth of every child cal us to our communal responsibility to protect children,to take them on wild adventures and to let them grow into the unique person they care called to be
May we hear angelic voices singing our dream of peace on earth

Follow my reflections on the 12 Days of Christmas here.
