People:   We celebrate the birth of Jesus, who showed us how to express God by letting the Christ within be our guide.

Leader:   Herod was afraid of what Jesus might do and tried to destroy him.

People:   We often fear what we do not understand. Jesus showed us that love is stronger than fear.

All:   As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we celebrate how he lived, and we remind ourselves to live as Jesus lived by loving as Jesus loved – all people, all the time.
