The Dean of the Zinzendorf School of Doctoral Studies, Dr. Donald Tinder, released the following Christmas message:
On behalf of Zinzendorf School of Doctoral Studies, I bring Christmas greetings at this season that celebrates the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. This year, joyous festivities in much of the world are greatly muted because of the pandemic.
Multitudes are mourning the premature deaths or lasting impairments of loved ones. They and many more are suffering the loss of incomes and businesses. All over, people are much more restricted than usual.
May we use this time not for complaining but for prayerful reflection. May we be resolving that, when freedom of movement is restored, we will make better use of our time and talents to convey the good news about Jesus and why He came to a world that desperately needs it.
