He thank Bishop and Canaan Land church family for showing him love.
10: The second speaker of the evening Bro. Jermain Hunt gave a story presentation of how Santa described the true meaning of Christmas.
11: "Teach the Children" ..and Santa whispered,"Teach the children the true meaning of Christmas."...He pulled out of his bag a Fir tree-evergreen showing everlasting hope of mankind. Next he put a red ornament on the tree-red symbolize the sacrifice for all; the blood he shed.Then he placed a star on the tree-God promised a Savior for the world and the star was a sign of fulfillment. Suddenly, I heard a soft tinkling he pulled out a bell-it rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold. We are all precious in his eyes.He then reached in his bag and pulled out a candle-symbolizing Christ is the light of the world. Again he reached in his bag and pulled out a wreath-symbolizing the real nature of love. Real love never ceases, like Gods love which has no beginning or end. He reached in his bag and pulled out a candy cane and hung it on the tree.The candy cane represents the shepherd's crook; the crook on the staff brings back lost sheep to the flock. If you turn it upside down it is a J for Jesus. He pulled a gift from his bag and placed it under the tree. He said, "Teach the children that God so love the world that he gave his only son.." Last but not least he pulled out an angel and placed it on the tree. It was angels that announced the Saviors birth; and they are guardians watching over us. "Remember, teach the children the true meaning of Christmas and do not put me in the center.For I am but an humble servant of the One that is, and I bow down to worship Him,our Lord,our God."
