My Christmas thoughts

Don't want to rant and rave on, but just thought I'd quickly share my thoughts on the reason for the season.

My christmas thoughts this year are very heavily focussed on the Incarnation; the act of God-becoming-man. the story of a God who was so moved with compassion, whose heart was so wretched with pain at the plight of humanity, that He came and lived amongst us.

He made Himself open and vulnerable to the pain and suffering of humanity, and came to live out right relationship with the Father that we might see and understand.

So Chritmas this year for me is about mission, about 'As the Father has Sent me, so I send you' (John 20:21).

Whatever your reflections on Christmas are this year, I hope its a good one.
