It is so hard to believe that Christmas is only five days away. It feels like only yesterday that we just celebrated Thanksgiving. But isn’t everything out of sorts or in disarray in these past ten months. As we go from crisis to crisis or conflict to conflict, everything seems to blend or merge together and time is either at a standstill or at a blur. Yet, here we are—the Sunday before Christmas. This is the day that West Los Angeles Christian Center is celebrating Christmas. Although the official day is this Friday, we will be celebrating Jesus birth today, as a congregation, so that we can spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our loved ones—either in-person or virtually.
