I wish all those who observe this holiday a peaceful and joyous Noel. For those for whom this season brings sadness or reminders of grief, I wish you the comfort of those who love you. For those who find themselves in places of violence, hunger, or fear I pray you find the shelter of a friendly innkeeper. For those for whom this is not a sacred day , I hope you find rest and welcome amidst reminders that we are all part of a common human family – regardless of belief.
