First Sunday After Christmas
Scripture: John 1:1-18
Hovering over all of history – the parts we have recorded and all that came before – is the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God. This Jesus, whom we can begin to grasp as the baby born on Christmas, is obviously something infinitely beyond our understanding. This is light no darkness can blot out. This true light is now loose in the world. John had proclaimed this coming, yet those Jesus came to did not accept him. But the choice is still there: accept him and become the children of God.
