|“I greet you at this
Christmas Season, in love and fellowship, and with a prayer that our
Eternal Father will look down upon you in mercy and pour out His
bounteous blessings upon you.
“In these times when iniquity abounds, when there are great tribulations on the earth, when there are wars and rumors of wars, we are all in need, as never before, of the guiding and preserving care of the Lord. . . .
“. . . I now pray that at this Christmas Season, and at all times, we may center our faith in the Son of God and gain for ourselves that peace which passeth understanding.”
