Christmas 2014!

Merry Christmas! Today we commemorate the birth of the (hu)man whose life, teachings, actions, death, and yes, his resurrection, inspired those early generations of his followers to call him our rabbi/teacher; our Messiah; a son and heir of king David; the logos of God made flesh who was one with God; "Emmanuel" meaning "God with us"; the Lord over all; and so much more. While the season is complex due to its commercialization and cultural baggage, I pray that the message of the day be made simple: "God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Godself." I hope everyone has a wonderful day remembering and reflecting upon this mysterious proclamation.
