Merry Christmas

Dear Friends of Wisdom House,

On behalf of the entire staff at Wisdom House, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas.  The words of author Wilda English speak to all that we hope for your Christmas season:

God grant you the light of Christmas, which is faith;
The warmth of Christmas, which is love; 
The radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
The righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
The belief in Christmas, which is truth;
The all of Christmas, which is Christ." 
At this joyous time of year, we are grateful for our community. It is the people who make Wisdom House the unique and revered place that it is. It has been a blessing for us to walk alongside you in 2017, and we hope that you will join us in 2018 for our programs in spirituality, education, ecology, and the arts.

Wishing you peace and happiness in the Spirit of the Season.

Deborah Kelly
