And the Word became flesh and lived among us (John 1:14).
It is in the mystery and miracle of the Christmas story that God comes to us, right into our neighborhoods. If God can cross a cosmic divide—a divide far greater than any real or perceived divide in our world—and come to live among us in Jesus, the Jesus upon whom our faith is based, don’t you think we can acknowledge and overcome the divides that separate us?
This message is an excerpt from “Crossing the divide” by Linda Post Bushkofsky in the December 2019 issue of Gather magazine. Today is the first Sunday of Christmas.
