Advent 6, 2016
Are there any more poignant words in the English language, spoken by one of the disciples in his older years?
"The Word became flesh" means the expression of God became vulnerable and killable.
At a college concert yesterday held at a church in Dalton, I saw the perfect Christmas display with the real Christmas tree. A manger scene about a foot high. Behind the figures, a cross of rough hewn branches towering above it. I took pictures to show my husband. That is what he wanted to put up but couldn't visualize. The cross and the manger go together.
