Around the world, as we return to post-pandemic normalcy, people are greeting each other in celebration of one of the most significant Christmas Eves. The idea of greeting takes on a new meaning as it embodies our story with Christ as He comes into the world.
We are not simply regathering. We are greeting each other, embraced by Jesus Christ, who made the whole world new with love, hope, and grace. It is that radical hospitality which spans eternity with the promise of the kingdom of God.
