Flattening the Hills
Last week we read about the noble wise men. This week we read about shepherds. Wise men don’t usually hang out with shepherds. And gods don’t usually hang out with men.
God is not ashamed to make his home among us. Why should we be ashamed to spend time with one another?
Part of the meaning of Christmas is that in Christ, all barriers that we think are important – rich, poor, weak, strong, disabled, differently-abled, black, white (and every other beautiful shade of brown) – are forever erased.
