If you have dedicated yourself the following Christ, to live as Jesus lived and do what Jesus did, he will never let you go. Remember, God is reaching down to us. When we reach back up and grasp his hand, he’s the one doing the holding.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Our Gospel reading today begins by mentioning the “Feast of the Dedication” which took place in Jerusalem. We don’t hear too much about the Feast of the Dedication. It’s also known as the Festival of Lights, or Hanukah.
