We are thankful for your support and partnership in our mission to see families empowered and supported to care for children. As we reflect on the Christmas story this year, Faith to Action is reminded of the strength and power of vulnerable children and families. In the nativity, almighty God embodies the most vulnerable state of humanity; a newborn, wholly reliant on others for His care and protection.
While contradictory to western culture, scripture continually displays God’s preference for utilizing those whom others would least expect to do great things. From His birth to His ministry and ultimate death, Jesus displayed and recognized the power of the lowly, poor, sick and humble.
Christmas is a time for us all to consider how great vulnerability and great power can exist together. At Faith to Action, we have seen that even families in the most desperate of conditions have a deep strength and power to care for their children and their communities, and the story of Christ’s birth encourages us to continue to support families in doing so.
We pray that you may enjoy the holidays with those you love and be encouraged in your work to empower vulnerable families and children.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
