The Cross in Christmas…

Coming to the manger… and finding the Cross in Christmas.

Christmas cannot be bought.

Christmas cannot be created.

Christmas cannot be made by hand.

Christmas isn’t a product to wrap, but a person to unwrap.

Christmas can only be found in the creche, in the cradling trough, in the mire and the stench and the unexpected and unlikely and only only in the person of Christ.

The mystery so large becomes the babe so small — and infinite God becomes infant.

Christ, the babe, comes in Christmas as Christ the Savior comes on the cross – seeking only our embrace.
