Bethleham: beginning of our Journey

“For outlandish creatures like us, on our way to a heart, a brain, and courage, Bethlehem is not the end of our journey but only the beginning—not home but the place through which we must pass if ever we are to reach home at last.”

-Frederick Buechner

I know I focus a lot on the hope of Christmas, the hope of a Savior who knows our pain, and that is because I have (like most everyone reading this) had times where the only comfort I felt was the knowldge that my Savior understood my pain.  But the other part of that hope, the more important part, is that we have a Savior who not only came and lived in our broken world and understands us, but He later conquers our broken world through death and ressurection and is returning for His people.  Bethleham is a beautiful introduction/first chapter to an even more beautiful book!
