Christmas is not about history.
It is about the coming of God into our own lives, again and again.
In the serenity of the neighborhood at nightfall after the snow has fallen and all is quiet
In the love of our families – with us now or passed on to the next life – love so strong and true it can’t be dismissed
In memories that are magical in their power to still bring us joy
In being with us in the pain
In sparing us
In loving us.
All of these moments and more are Christmas.
See you in church.
