Christmas 1 – The birth of Jesus is seen as an invitation to participate in the intimate relationship with God that is seen in the way that Jesus lived. Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, tells us that Jesus was born so that we might become adopted daughters and sons in the family of our Creator, in an intimate relationship that cares for the repairing and healing of woundedness and brokenness. Because Christ reveals the true state of our hearts, for us to be effective members of this family, confession and penitence are vitally important components in our practice of Christian spirituality.
Galatians 4: 4-; Luke 2: 22-40
