“Good Tidings of Great Joy”


To you our beloved associates in the building of the kingdom of God on earth and to all mankind:

May the joy of those tidings of the angel to the shepherds near Bethlehem be yours at this Christmastime and in the unending tomorrows ahead.

May yours be the joy of knowing the reality of a resurrection for each of us and of the opportunity of eternal life—all through the Prince of Peace.

Most of all, we wish for you and yours the blessings and enduring happiness that come through keeping His commandments. Indeed, in His gifts are joy for the world!
