This is John’s Christmas. This is incarnation. No shepherds, no angels, no crèche, no Magi. John’s story is so utterly unlike the familiar crèche or pageant. How on earth could one make this, John’s story of the incarnation, into a...

Archbishop William Temple said, “The source of humility is the habit of realizing the presence of God.” We may as well face it, none of us likes to wait. Modern culture demands immediacy. Whatever we want, we want it now. If that’s...
