In my correspondence this week I have received many Christmas blessings. The following quote was sent to me via the Reverend Ian McGrath (B.C.A.) – Please forgive me for my “political incorrectness” as I share this quote from philosopher and theologian, Augustine of Hippo (354 – 430). It is such a pithy summary and reminder of the wonder of Christmas.
He so loved us that, for our sake,
He was made man in time,
although through him all times were made.
He was made man, who made man.
He was created of a mother whom he created.
He was carried by hands that he formed.
He cried in the manger in wordless infancy, he the Word,
without whom all human eloquence is mute.
May you and all your loved ones, join the shepherds and the wise men in seeking after Jesus. May the presence of the Christ child be irrefutably evident to you this Christmas season and may you find in Him the greatest gift – and a treasure beyond imagining.
Love and Blessings to you all,
