A Christmas Blessing

Posted by griffithd on December 20, 2018 at 10:05 PM

In this season of Joy, may you find Joy.

In this season of Peace, may you find Peace.

In this season of Hope, may you find Hope.

May you be blessed with all three.

As you anticipate the birth of the Carpenter from Bethlehem let me offer this addition.

To those where there is little Joy, may you bring some.

To those who have little Peace, may you create some.

To those who have little Hope, may you give Hope.

To the good women and men of ECS for whom this is your everyday work and to all in our sector who answer this common call to service. Thank You.

In a world sorely lacking compassion, courage, and care

your work is a beacon for Joy, Peace, and Hope. Thank You.

To those who support this common call, Thank You.

To all who wear Muddy Boots and go into the field and do or support this work, we are grateful.

But more than grateful, more than Thank You, let us call on our better nature and the long held notion of the common good and call for change and make change happen. The reality is time is not on our side. 

Change to public policy that does more than maintain the status quo of poverty, change that creates impact investments in education, housing, and wellness, changes that create employments at living wages. Poverty ends with a job at a living wage. Rather than build walls, lets create bridges.

Perhaps then Joy, Peace, and Hope can be more than just a blessing.
