Christmas Day (S)

Isaiah 52:7-10; Psalm 98:1-6; Hebrews 1:1-6; John 1:1-5, 9-14

We saw his glory

The true light that enlightens all women and men has come into the world. So brilliant, the darkness cannot overcome it. We have seen his glory. Or have we? A strange and mystifying splendour it is -- a helpless baby, born in a cowshed and laid down on a bale of hay. If you don’t perceive God’s glory now, it could be that you may have missed it if you were there when Jesus was born. Not what we expected, a helpless infant. Give us the power to become your children.
