To My Shiloh Family and Friends,

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

In this verse you have God and His Son, the giver and the gift.  The Author and the Finisher of our faith.  Christ was God’s love gift to mankind.  The death of Christ was the supreme demonstration of God’s love.

The reason why we celebrate Christmas is because of the birth of Christ.  This celebration started in 336 A.D.  It was known as the feast of the Nativity.  In 1050 A.D. the feast was called Christmas.  Christmas means a festival for Christ.  This is the season for giving gifts and being together with family and friends.

Merry Christmas to all,

Pastor Daniels
