In this season of Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The world today, like the world over 2000 years ago, is filled with darkness: fear and falsehood, war and refugees, loneliness and strife, and fundamentally the sinful nature in each of our hearts. We need a Savior.

Praise God that a Savior has come! With the angels and shepherds, we celebrate this good news of great joy: Jesus Christ is born. He comes to shine the truth and the light into our darkness and the darkness of this world, bringing peace on earth. Joy to the world!

From all of us at BioLogos, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

In this season of giving and gratitude, please consider supporting the work of BioLogos with a year-end gift.
