Christmas Quotes – Good will toward men

October 22, 2007

“We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power
and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength
with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in
our time and for all time the ancient vision of ‘peace
on earth, good will toward men.’ That must always be
our goal, and the righteousness of our cause must always
underlie our strength.”

John F Kennedy

have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death

and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end
Isaiah 9:2, 6-7
