Beyond our ken

Christmas Eve 

Be still, then, and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:11

The sprinkling of snow on the lawn that greets me this morning is a surprise and a delight. A gift. in my part of the world, snow on Christmas is the icing on the cake. In other parts of this country, this world, of God’s creation, the rituals and traditions of this feast differ.

God speaks to us in sign and language that meets us in various times and places, even when the divine is beyond our ken. The Incarnation, God become flesh, is not for one. Christ is the savior of the world.

Come, Jesus.
