It has been a really rough year. The worry, the fear, the uncertainty has been overwhelming for all of us in 2020. Frankly folks, I have never experienced anything like it. Regardless, I am still alive, we have a vaccine coming, and hopefully our country will survive as a place of hope and prosperity.
All this being said, on behalf of myself and the entire staff of the Coastal Network, I would like to take this opportunity on this Christmas Eve to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Christmas and a much better New Year in 2021.
If you have family or friends that would like to keep up with what’s happening politically, not only in Delaware, but nationwide from my specific perspective, please have them write to me at [email protected] and I will add them to the list.
Our lives are in God’s hands. Tonight during my Christmas service I will be saying a few prayers. God bless you all and may God bless America!
My very best regards,
JUDSON Bennett-Coastal Network
