Christmas is the story of God starting to put everything right-ways up again.
Of all the people God could have invited to His Son’s birthday party, he chose stinky shepherds.
Christmas is messy. Christmas is ugly. And in its messiness and ugliness, Christmas meets us right where we are.
The first Christmas began with violence and proceeded directly to scandal.
Christmas is not nostalgia and good feelings and peace and joy. Christmas is an invasion.
You’ve probably forgotten about one of the most important parts of the Christmas story.
Jesus is really weird.
Every one of us is chasing happiness. Most of us are chasing it all wrong.
