Ruth Carter Stapleton once said, “Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” This day rings out with joy, family, twinkling lights, the sound of song, the scent of celebration. It also calls us to take this celebration into the silence of those who have been silenced, the darkness between the lights, and the hunger of poverty. For it was into these that the Christ was born.
