This year has been filled with bittersweet moments, ups and downs for all of us. Some of us have lost loved ones and other have had great success and welcomed new family members. As we celebrate this season let's remember the reason we celebrate -- Jesus Christ and the great love He has for all of us. He came to die so that we would have new and eternal life. Everyone here at Common Ground pray that you are filled with His peace and joy overflowing with the Holy Spirit. Merry Christmas!
