I posted this last Christmas, but it’s such a good quote to get us in the right mood for the season. That mood being a revolutionary, disturbing one 😉
Christmas is an easy time for Christians to get sentimental and schmaltzy, so in the interest of remembering how radically earth-shattering this event was, here are some thoughts on the Incarnation of Christ from N.T. Wright:
How can you cope with the end a world and the beginning of another one? How can you put an earthquake into a test-tube, or the sea into a bottle? How can you live with the terrifying thought that the hurricane has become human, that the fire has become flesh, that life itself came to life and walked in our midst? Christianity either means that, or it means nothing. It is either the more devastating disclosure of the deepest reality in the world, or it’s a sham, a nonsense, a bit of deceitful play-acting. Most of us, unable to cope with saying either of those things, condemn ourselves to live in the shallow world in between…
