Christmas Greetings!

Yes, my world has been rocked by my recent medical tests and an uncertain future. But it is the greatest comfort imaginable that my cancer news coincides with Christmas, and its best ever interruption.

God creator of everything, eternal word, clothed in transcendent glory has shown who is he in a baby born of Mary, vulnerable, wrapped in cloth within a manger. God really is there and he shows us who he is in Jesus. The Incarnation remains the world's greatest interruption which makes possible the life, death and resurrection of the Lord of Life who forever remains with us, Immanuel. There really is a good God and he is here for us, whatever we face.

Over these next couple of days I am saying a prayer written by a British friend Jamie Wallace.


Lord Jesus, we welcome you into our world, into human life, into our hearts.


Thank you for coming to teach and heal, to befriend and lead, and to die for our salvation.


Thank you for being here now as you promised you would be, and forever. Amen.


May you have a wonderful celebrations this Christmas, with a good year full of God's grace stretching ahead.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. And, remember that Jesus who entered this world as a baby is no longer one but is our Great Intercessor who sits at the right hand of His Father making intercession for you praying the perfect will of the Father. Therefore, I am sending His healing Word to you this day per Ps. 107:20.

Dr.Quicke, Having been the recipient of the healing touch of God for 4 heart attacks, 2 strokes, an acute renal failure, and most recently lymphoma, I commend you to the God of all Comfort, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think, to do what He alone does. In 2007 He rescued me from the hospice at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, in which 13 medical staff received Christ into their hearts. Ask God what His purpose is for this diagnosis...God bless you with His answer.Class of 2001
