Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Our Father in Heaven, during this Christmas season may we remember it is better to give than to receive. And the best gift is the one given to those who cannot repay.

And let us remember the homeless this holiday season, for so was our Savior's family on the night of his birth.

And while the world went to be taxed, God taught the world about giving your best to perfect strangers, for in so doing we may be entertaining angels unaware.

And like the wise men, let us never consider the distance or difficulty of our journey to offer our gifts to the King. And may we follow the example of this King, who being the very image of God, humbled himself to save others, laying down his life on the cross for their sin. That was the most perfect Christmas gift of all.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
