Christmas can't be denied

Think how insignificant a single feed trough in a stable would seem in a large city filled with people. Yet in this humble place was laid Jesus, the human representative of Christ, whose light fills the world. If we feel that there is no space for the Christ light in our hearts or in the rush of material activities at Christmas, we need only remember that it can be placed in the smallest corner of our thinking.

If it is nurtured there, it will grow to light our entire lives with the fullness of God's promise as given in the book of Isaiah: "The Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody" (51:3).
