The absurdity of Christmas

Christmas is coming. We light candles for Advent and prepare our hearts for a miracle. The songs, the trees, the moments of yearning and waiting, the knowledge there will be surprises on Christmas morning. I love it all, perhaps mostly for the predictability of knowing that some variation of all these things will happen in my December.

Yet that first “away in a manger” wasn’t scheduled, it was a time of mystics, of dreams and visions, of God appearing in the least planned and most absurd ways.

Through her work, she has witnessed ordinary people from all over the world build peace rooted in faith, fail at building peace, start again, learn from and laugh with one another. We can do this too, right here at home, starting slow and small.
