If you’re honest, the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth in so many ways seem utterly unlikely. But if you think about it, they are nothing compared to the audacious claim that’s behind them – that God became fully human to personally share divine love, save humanity, bring God’s justice and ensure that God’s will shall be just as real on earth as it is in heaven. Yet, that’s exactly what has happened. It is the hope we human beings so desperately need. And it’s the Good News of a Great Joy we celebrate this Christmas.
