Being myself in the Christmas spirit, I wanted to write some thoughts on the incarnation. However, today I read NT Wright's thoughts, and they were both more astounding and edifying than anything I could write. That does not mean I still won't write anything. That does mean there are higher theologians and thinkers out there, and Advent may be a time to reflect with them. Check NT out at http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2006/decemberweb-only/151-42.0.html, and go tell your friends.
Merry Christmas to all!
