Dear Residents and Family Members,


As we think about the Christmas season, we reflect on the birth of Jesus.  Luke tells us of one of the stories of Jesus’ walk on this earth, with the story of Jesus’ birth. “While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.  She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2: 6 – 7 NIV


Those who grew up in the Christian tradition heard many stories of Jesus’ life, from sermons on Sunday morning to Sunday School classes and Vacation Bible School.  As a child, I was always fascinated by Jesus’ life and the diversity of his life story.  I learned early on that Jesus was a person with more than “one single story.”


Born of Mary, Jesus was a student of the law and the Torah, a teacher, and a carpenter.  He accepted all, including the Woman of Samaria.  He spoke to the multitudes at the Sermon on the Mount, was a healer of the dead and the living, and provided food to thousands.  Jesus was a person with a complex and vivid life.  One title or role does not define his presence on earth.  This month we celebrate his birth.


You are like Jesus, a person with a multitude of stories that tell us who you are.  Be sure to tell your story to loved ones this Christmas season.  Some of our residents, team members, and Board members have shared their stories with us.  These stories are published in a book titled “We are More than a Single Story.”  A copy of this book is in your campus library.  Or drop an email to and we will send you an electronic copy.


Have a blessed Christmas.


Peace and Hope,


Mark King

President & CEO
