23rd of December 2015

From Sister Theresa Aletheia Noble, a former atheist's blogpost Have Yourself a Broken Little Christmas, (

This is the broken nature of Christmas. We celebrate a Savior who entered a wounded world. And every year we celebrate his birth, we see evidence that our world is still so broken, still so in need of the saving power of Jesus.

Our Savior did not come as a king, although he could have saved us in any way he pleased. Rather, he came as a tiny, vulnerable child. He entered our broken, violent, hate-filled world as a tiny, trusting, child, to be with us.

Emmanuel, God with us.
