And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. - Luke 2:10–11

Dear CU Martus Cornerstone Partners and other friends of the ministry,

This story of the shepherds and the angels has always been a favorite. Maybe because the scene is so vivid. Or because it was such a stark contrast between field work and supernatural glory. This is definitely a season where we needed the reminder of God’s Advent power amidst the extraordinary ordinariness of Covid-tide. Of course, it would look a little different: God’s power breaking through a Zoom call, or an angelic host gathering above a rather lonely Franklin Field. God’s breaking into history is our hope. He came through 2000 years ago in the birth of Christ. He is trustworthy to come through again when Jesus will return and bring restoration and renewal to all things.

Please pray:

  • For a restful Christmas break for all our students and staff — that they might enjoy this season of worship!
  • For students to stay strong in the disciplines of grace over a long break. Pray that God would speak through His Word powerfully and that the eyes of students’ hearts would be enlightened (Eph. 1.18) so that they would abound in hope.
  • For the preparation of our spring semester - pray that our freshmen would grow in their faith but also develop life-giving relationships as we will hopefully be in person!

Happy New Year!
