God is born in love, not in a palace, but in a hay trough. God is born, not into safety and power, but almost immediately into running for his life.
It’s quite a story. It’s your story, my story too. No matter where our stories might take us, God will redeem.
Why is this time so hallow’d, so gracious? Because the bird of dawning singeth all night long; because the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it!
Everything is all over the place, and God is right in the middle of it!
Living in the middle is hard. God is with us all the way.
