Justin Linseisen, Director of Pastoral Care
Someone told me a while back that the years keep getting shorter and shorter. Boy howdy, isn’t that the truth? The year has flown by far to quickly, and now we are full from thanksgiving and heading into the Christmas season. My hope for you and me this Christmas season is that we will enjoy each and every moment. I hope that you will savor time with friends, family, neighbors, and loved ones. My prayer is that we can discover again the beauty and the wonder of Christmas – the beauty and wonder that there is a God who sent the greatest gift to mankind – His Son, Jesus – to offer hope, love, joy, and peace!
This December we will be collecting donations for the Lexington Rescue Mission. There will be a collection box near the mailboxes in the big house for those donations. What the mission is in need of right now are as followed: gloves, men’s & woman’s underwear, socks, deodorant, razors, and winter coats (no other clothes are accepted). Other hygiene donations and new or gently used coats can be collected as well. If you have any questions please let me know. Thank you for caring and loving for those at Lexington Rescue Mission. You’re making an impact in peoples lives!
I want to be sure and invite you this Advent season to services at Heritage Church. We meet each Sunday at 10am in the dining room at Liberty Ridge. If you do not attend a Christmas Eve service anywhere, I hope you will join my family and me at Eastland’s Christmas Eve candlelight service at 6pm. I will be driving the Liberty Ridge bus to Eastland for anyone who would like to attend. Let me know, and I will come pick you up.
From my family to you, Merry Christmas and may God bless you in this wonderful season!

Season’s Greetings! We are in the midst of another holiday season! I would like to share a little poem with you that touched my heart, and I hope you will enjoy as well.
THE TRUE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
“Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas.
All else is outward display-so much tinsel and decorations.
For it isn’t the holly, it isn’t the snow. It isn’t the tree, not the firelight’s glow.
It’s the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again.”
Please join us for all of our holiday events and activities this month. On behalf of all members of the Liberty Ridge team, I can tell you we are grateful to have the opportunity to celebrate with all of you and your families, during this time of fellowship, giving, and kindness, to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Also…as the holidays approach, please kindly remember we once again offer you the opportunity to donate to the Employee Gift Fund. We ask residents, guests and families that wish to thank our staff for all their hard work throughout the year, to make a donation to our Employee Gift Fund. Please call the office if you have any questions.
