“Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God.”
What is Christmas magic?
A sermon on Isaiah 40, offered on December 18, 2016 at Landrum Presbyterian Church.
From the sermon:
“How can we believe
in a Prince of Peace
when bombs fall ceaselessly,
and rulers manipulate & distort with impunity,
and commentators obfuscate & yell for vast profit,
and the violent bear away all we hold dear,
and the Big Lie reigns supreme?
“What is Christmas magic?
For one another,
as God has come
to be for us–
and far more
than even we who believe
Merry Christmas to all–
