THE IMPORTANCE OF CHRISTMAS

26th December 2018

Many people over the last two millennia have reflected on the lowly start of the Christ-child. The stable we imagine was not like the radiant clean places of Christmas cards; it was more likely to be poor, cold and smelly. The lowly birth of this child, Jesus, was to change human history; God had become human.

  • At moments during the day, I will go back in my imagination to that stable in Bethlehem. I reflect on the significance of that event in the world today. I also thank God for the overwhelming generosity of Godís gift of Jesus to the world.
