There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

make holy merry…

I pray you a measure of silence and solitude in these few days of celebration, that you might reflect on the fact that He really came here, cold and vulnerable, destined for difficulty.  I pray you muse on what His coming means about Him and you, about what He thinks of sin, and what He believes about sinners.  I pray you find something forming inside you–a subtle emergence of delight–as you consider how very known you are, and how very cherished you are to have been rescued through the giving over of One so precious to the Father.

He is born, friends of mine.  He lives now.  He prays for you.  For such things, whatever your circumstances, there is still room for merriment this Christmas.

peace be with you, and where there is need for repentance, may He beckon you to the peace that comes from the other side of repentance
