In my Christian tradition today is Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. That tiny human, born over 2,000 years ago, and the religion built around Him, has come to symbolize many things to many people: liberating and comforting for some, oppressive for others. But for me the baby, Jesus, is the reminder that all that is vulnerable in our world is holy and precious, and that the Whole of the Universe is present and immanent in each tiny part. And so this day, Christmas Day, I kneel and wonder at the miracle of birth, of hope, of peace, of joy, of love. To my human family who celebrate this day (in whatever manner you do), Merry Christmas! And to all, may hope, peace, joy, and love be continually born in your lives as well as in our human institutions and myriad systems of relationship here on Earth.
