The 'miracle of Christmas' continues

The wonderful message of Christmas is that God, divine Love, is here, now, present for every one of us to experience. And the greatest illustration of this Love is the life of Christ Jesus.

Jesus embodied the divine, devoting himself to sharing with humanity the deepest love possible. We could say it’s a miracle that this happened—it’s as if a bird came underwater to teach fish to fly. Like the lives of birds and fish, spiritual life and material life do not particularly relate. The Gospel of John describes this incompatibility as light relating to darkness: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:5). Spiritual life relates to divine Spirit; to the expression of spiritual qualities of God such as wisdom, purpose, and love. Material life is about the notion that all is matter. Christmas commemorates the fact that into this apparently material experience came the message and proof, and impetus for us all to prove, that life is really Spirit.
