Dear Friends,

Christmas marks the event 2018 (or so) years ago when God took on our human flesh and our human nature. It sounds crazy to imagine that God became one of us, but this is the radical step we believe He took. He did this in order to begin the process of repairing the relationship between Himself and humanity that was damaged in the Fall. We look at the Christ-child and see what a powerful act of trust and solidarity it was for God to become utterly vulnerable (is there anything more vulnerable than a baby?) We know that this vulnerability resulted in his eventual death, but He was vindicated when He rose from the dead.
