Unprecedented Christmas – Unexpected Joy

In a Christmas season marked by uncertainty and fear from the unfamiliar and unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, LWF President Archbishop Dr Panti Filibus Musa invites Christians to trust in the promise of “God’s coming into the world to bring light and life and hope amid all the difficulties we continue to encounter.”

Likening the fears experienced by Mary and Joseph to today’s anxiety, Musa shares his conviction that “the birth of this child, laid in a manger and welcomed by humble shepherds, will bring new hope and new light to a dark world.”
