Christmas and New Year wishes

Dear friends,

Over Christmas time, we are often surrounded by haste, sly commercialism filled with shallowness, which obscures the depth of Jesus´s celebration. Lord Jesus inspires us to become free from commonness and shallowness. Jesus personalizes strong character, sense of creativity, practical love and willingness to act and live holier than the law requires. He brings about grace and hope for beautiful and everlasting future in His gospel.

May all of you have a lot of quality rest, inspiration and encouragement in faith, hope and practical love from Jesus alone. Let us seek inspiration not to cease to dream, create and fight for deep and useful things for people around.

I wish all of these in my name and in the names of my colleagues and members of VBH board.

„For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.“

(Isaiah 9,6)

„For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.“

(Ephesians 3,14-19)
