God Has a Name.

This week in Connecticut 20 children were killed in an horrific shooting. The story was all over the news and sent shock-waves around the world. This week approximately 147 000 children died from preventable diseases and yet little or no mention of them was made in the news. Is it perhaps because we can comprehend of 20 children dying and not 147 000? Is it perhaps because we have the names of those 20 children and that makes it far more real to us? At Christmas we remember that God, who in many ways was incomprehensible, came to earth in human form and became knowable, see-able, understandable. At Christmas we remember that God came to earth and was given a name, the name of Jesus! Jesus sent shock-waves around the world and still does because He is a reality in the midst of uncertainty, fear and sadness.
