The Word became flesh and lived among us.
Christmas is not merely about a little babe once upon a time,
but the Incarnation: God’s Word made flesh,
God’s love embodied among us,
God’s will, that is, God’s delight, living among us
and within us, the miracle of living itself.
This is a new Creation,
the bursting forth of God’s light in our darkness,
the birthing of God’s love in our hearts.
This is a day of our belonging,
as God, in infinite power and love,
chooses to belong to us, who belong to God.
This day we celebrate the undoing of our undoing:
the healing of our imagined wound:
for now we know, from manger to cross,
God is one of us, and we are one of God.
