Christ is born!

John 1:5, 9-14 "The Nativity of the Lord" 

"What we seek is not the appearance of God in the world but the shining of God through creation, a "disphany" of God radiating through a world that becomes transparent."

Tonight a 17 year old in the Haight was crying, he had had his money stolen from him, he felt alone. I thought of Dorothy so many years ago giving a diamond someone gave her to an old woman, and I gave him $40.00. The tears, and the joy in his face, and he said, "most people take from me," and in giving to him I gave to Jesus. For this to me is the presence of Jesus in the world--in the lives of the people around me--he is not far away--but with me. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
