No Week-in-Review this week. May this quotation from Living the Christian Year help put your Christmas in proper perspective.
So in this season we come once more to Bethlehem in the poverty of the shepherds and humility of the Magi. We bow before the feedbox which holds the Bread of Life, the gift by which we’re enriched. We find our words, even our poetry, failing us, as Dietrich Bonheoffer so eloquently discerned:
“Our words rush out at the sight of the divine child; we try to put into language what is implied in the name: Jesus. But at the bottom these words are nothing except a worldless silence of adoration before the ineffable, before the presence of God in the shape of a human child.” — Bobby Gross, Living the Christian Year: Time to Inhabit the Story of God, InterVarsity Press, 2009, p.74.
