‘Big and glossy and loud and fast -—- that’s how this bent-up world keeps turning.
But God, when He comes to us — He shows up in this fetal ball.
Christmas is coming — and who doesn’t want to come into startling wonder:

The Giver becomes the Gift…”

Let this Christmas come into the wonder of more Christ and less crazy?
