Christmas is a paradox. We are bombarded with many reminders to be jolly yet for many it is the most depressing time of the year as another year end reminds us of unresolved problems and unfulfilled dreams. And if you are a Christian you are just jaded from the many Christmas seasons you have gone through.
Yet Christmas should be a time of great joy. It is a reminder that God is truly Immanuel, “God with us.” Christmas reminds us that God stepped into human history to bring us true hope and joy.
May this collection of meditations help you refocus on the true meaning of Christmas, and in getting the true picture we find our faith renewed and our mission strengthened.
