Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)

Isaiah 52:7-10; Hebrews 1:1-6; John 1:1-18
Today is a celebration of good news, but is the news that you celebrate truth or fantasy? Why must we categorize and label that which cannot be labeled? Why must we revere our Brother as something he was not? Do you really think he came to be exalted? Is he someone above us to whom we are pleading for a rope, or someone below who is pushing us ever higher? Is he truly the only son of our Parent, or the only one with the courage to claim our full birthright? Is he truly the only one to have ever seen our Creator, or just one truly willing to look and see? What good news will you celebrate today?
