Christmas Letter 2017 from Rev. John

Dear Family and friends,
This Christmas message comes to you with warm wishes for all the good that God has prepared for you and yours.
Let us make this meditation by Paramahansa Yogananda our Christmas prayer:
Spreading Divine Joy
Beginning with the early dawn each day, I will radiate joy to everyone I meet.
I will be mental sunshine for all who cross my path. I will burn candles of smiles in the bosoms of the joyless. Before the unfading light of my cheer, darkness will take flight.
Let my love spread laughter in all hearts, in every person belonging to every race. Let my love rest in the hearts of flowers, of animals, and of little specks of stardust.
I will try to be happy under all circumstances. I will make up my mind to be happy within myself right now, where I am today.
Let my soul smile through my heart and let my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter Thy rich smiles in sad hearts.
[This Christmas and always]I will behold in my life the perfect, healthy, all-wise,
all-blissful image of God.
And so it is.
As you celebrate the birth of omniscient, omnipresent Christ Consciousness, may you find the unbroken happiness of all your dreams.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Love and blessings,
Rev. John
