God using a young virgin from a backwater town is unfathomable. The Son of God being born in a stable is unfathomable. Angels appearing to the shepherds to announce a cosmic event is unfathomable. Pagan magi traveling long distances to worship a child is unfathomable. But perhaps the most unfathomable thing of all is that God became fully human. And yet, it is not unexpected –  because God will go to any length to share the fullness of divine love, help people trust that love, transform them and allow them the joy of participating in God’s work in the world.
