Last Sunday at Open Door, my friend Julia wrote and read an incredible piece on Christmas from a journalist’s perspective. Check out “The Call of Christmas.”
As she read, there was a picture of a mother’s hand holding a baby’s hand. The unique thing about this image is that the mother’s hand was gray-scale while the hand of the baby was flesh colored. Something weird was happening with the projector, casting a blueish hue on the image that eliminated the contrast of the gray and the flesh.
Then, just as she read this, “The omnipotent creator of the universe enters the world in the terrifyingly vulnerable form of a baby, subject to the danger and evils in the world,” the projector came into focus and the reality of the flesh colored hand landed with impact in our community.
God works in and through technology to tell His Story.
You could hear the entire community gasp at our collective understanding. Creator, Sustainer, Creator of all became flesh so we could see Him.
