“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” - JOHN 1:14
We live in an ever-changing world. Many times, change is good. In fact, I’m all for change whenever and wherever it is appropriate. There are those times in life, however, that are best served by tradition. Christmas is one of those times. Almost everyone you meet can tell you about a holiday tradition they have in their family. Our traditions are important to us because they say “Christmas” like nothing else does. But we must make sure our traditions are grounded in the holy occasion Christmas commemorates: God put on flesh and blood and lived among us.
In other words, the Word became a Voice! And how the world needs to hear that Voice! So let’s make sure to use our voices to proclaim the joy and Good News of Christmas in and through all of our traditions. The world is waiting to hear.
