I was thinking about what to say after all is said and done…so, I ripped off another blogger's post. Why? Nothing original to share? Not really…this just says what needs to be said. Enjoy the Celebration! Humble yourself before a Holy God born in a Newborn baby…for all to see and worship. Take your place in the midst of culture and proclaim from the highest hill, "Jesus is Lord". Jesus has moved into the neighborhood (The Message, John 1). Go tell it on the mountain…be a city set on a hill…live as a seed growing secretly for Kingdom purposes and with unlimited, Spirit-enabled potential. And have yourself a merry Christmas dear ones!
"So what is Christmas all about? Without giving a lecture or sermon.
Christmas is God opting into the messiness of the world and not exempting himself from it.
The former Bishop of Durham, David Jenkins, put it like this:
God is. God is as he is in Jesus. So, there is hope.
And the unsurpassed poet-songwriter-musician Bruce Cockburn writes:
Like a stone on the surface of a still river, driving the ripples on for ever, redemption rips through the surface of time in the cry of a tiny babe.
