Just wanted to share perhaps my favorite quote pertaining to the birth of Jesus:
“If holiness and the awful power and majesty of God were present in this least auspicious of all events, this birth of a peasant’s child, then there is no place or time so lowly and earthbound but that holiness can be present there too. And this means that we are never safe, that there is no place where we can hide from God, no place where we are safe from his power to break in two and re-create the human heart because it is just where he seems most helpless that he is most strong, and just where we least expect him that he comes most fully.” -Frederick Buechner, The Hungering Dark
Merry Christmas to all of you who read and/or post. And I hope that we all find him most fully this season.
