Jesus came to our world to offer 'hope'
Christmas may mean different things to different people, but the fact that God sent Jesus Christ into our world is the fundamental message of Christmas that Christians proclaim throughout the world.
The Rev. Brian Ferguson of Mount Zion Lutheran Church in Hudson said Jesus came to our world to offer "hope" to all.
"As a definition of Christmas we think of 'God Immanuel' which means 'God with us,'" Ferguson said.
