I read this somewhere the other day:
“In the land of the spirit, you cannot walk by the light of someone else’s lamp. You want to borrow mine. I’d rather teach you how to make your own.”
Jesuit Anthony de Mello
Jesus taught us and then gave us the charge to teach others how to be light. Christmas reminds us of the gift that God gave all of humankind. Light. Light shining into a very dark world bringing Peace, Joy, Love, and Hope.
So the story of Christmas is the story of God bringing Light into a dark world.
