A Christmas Prayer by the Chaplain of The Berry Schools The Rev. Harold W. McDaniel
Our Heavenly Father, Who art the source of happiness, joy and goodness, we praise Thee. We praise Thee because happiness, joy and goodness came into the world as shepherds watched over their flocks by night. We praise Thee, for out of Thy abundance and compassion all of creation was blessed when Thy Son was born in a stable and laid in a manger.
We give sincere thanks for salvation offered to the perishing through Him who made His entrance into the drama of human history as the Babe of Bethlehem. We give thanks that the spirit of the first Christmas can be experienced anew and is a part of this season for many. We are grateful for this spirit of sharing--sharing which has made possible Berry College and Mount Berry School for Boys.
In this season of good tidings, we pray Thee to bless people every where with the joy and peace of Christmas in the name of Him in Whose honor we celebrate this Day. Amen.

CHRISTMAS 1960
"Good Christian men, rejoice With heart and soul and voice!"
For many years at Christmas time these words have rung out over the Berry campus. From the lips of carolers and the tones of the chapel chimes they have come to the hearts of those who are a part of this place. They have become a testimonial of the attitude that prevails at Berry toward this special season.
Commercialism has not conquered Christmas for us. Of course, in festive moods we plan and purchase our gifts; we light and trim our trees; we join in friendly gatherings; we thrill at the thought of going home for the holidays. But our greatest emphasis is set on the serious side, and the season is a consecrated one. Through carols and cantatas, pageants and dramas, scriptures and sermons, we reverently celebrate the birthday of the Prince of Peace, the One who came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister." In our hearts there is great rejoicing.
We rejoice that we live in a land where men may still keep Christmas, where we can live with a purpose, where we can recall a noble heritage and work toward a wondrous future. We rejoice in the beauty about us and in our abundant living. We rejoice because of our friends and all who have faith in us.
In this spirit we send you our warmest greetings at this holy time of year, and it is our wish that this will also be a joyous time for you.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice."
Philippians 4:4
John R. Bertrand President The Berry Schools

"And The Word Was Made Flesh And Dwelt Among Us"
There are many ways of celebrating Christmas. The beautiful Carol Service in our chapel has come to be traditional at Berry.
Once more the golden voices of our students are proclaiming the birth of our King. From the belfry the brass quartet is sounding those immortal strains of "Silent Night." Candles are glowing from our windows reminding us of the light that has shone out from Berry through the years. On our doors are the Christmas wreaths symbolizing our circle of friends everywhere.
So, once more, it is our privilege to send you our greetings and our thanks for your share in making Berry what it is today. Wher ever you are and whatever circumstances may surround you we all have one common "tie that binds" -- the miracle of Christmas and assurance that Christ came to save us all.
In His name and for His sake we wish for you and yours the bless ings of this Holy Season now and always.
Faithfully yours,
Inez Henry
