"Neither Understood, Nor Overcome ..... "
As I write the Christmas ads are picking up momentum, Christmas songs are getting played on the radio, and preparation for events, services and other Christmas stuff in Church and School is all underway – so we can’t blame it all on the commercialisation of Christmas!
But in the midst of it, some of the words of the opening verses of John’s Gospel start to resonate, growing from a gentle whisper to a glorious out-pouring of wonder at what God is doing in his world through Jesus:
So how will I seek to encounter Jesus, God-with-us, this Christmas?
How will I respond to his life-giving light shining in my life?
How far will I go, diving into the mystery of not knowing, of not understanding, in order that I may see the light and experience his grace and truth?
How far dare I go this Christmas?
God bless for a very Happy Christmas!Revd Stephen Cooper
