Christmas - Scripture Soundings
In the present moment of the Christmas season we share with all Christians the blessed story of God-with-us in Emmanuel, Jesus the Christ, even while we await the fulfillment of all things in the final coming.
Because of the precious gift we "remember" this season, nothing will ever be the same again. The story of the Incarnation is not a fable or myth that teaches some lesson, however noble. It is the story of a life lived for others that God's reign might come. In Jesus we experience God's solidarity with us humans in our lives, in our struggles, in our hopes and dreams.
It is no longer enough for us to say, "I've heard that story before." This is not an old story too often repeated. It is story that is ever new, and it must be told to the whole world. It must be heard. It must be lived.
