Brief Reflection for Christmas

We have often enough said in moments of contentment, "God's in his heaven, and all's right with the world."  But, our empirical evidence is that all is not right with the world.  We are the Christmas people, the people who proclaim that God knows that all is not right, and is not satisfied just to stand afar off, there in heaven.  Instead, God became involved - intimately, inextricably, incomprehensibly involved; and by becoming part of God's own creation, God began the changes that will result in God's Kingdom, experienced in fullness.

Christmas is the day we proclaim that God is not just in heaven; and so we have the promise that all can and will be right with the world.
