Amidst all the carols, cards, candles, cakes and cuisines encircling us during this Christmas season, may the illumination of the Holy Spirit bring out more to our remembrance, the shadows of the manger in Bethlehem. The shadowed side of the manger describes the contrast and brings out even more the glory of God’s salvific act. The original account of the birth of Jesus, the Messiah, mentions a gritty and tense event filled with insecurity, fear, pain, and dirt. It’s about a childbirth after a rough and lengthy travel, far from supportive community, surrounded by questions of paternity. It involves massacred children and wailing towns. It entails the pathos of absconding refugees. It is this shadow of the manger that presents the marvel of God’s almost unbelievable grace in incarnation. This emphatically retells that we are loved, that we have value, and that God has made a way for us.
