In the name of the Word become flesh, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Through the Sundays of Advent, I preached about the centrality of the Incarnation in our faith and about how this belief is at the foundation of our Anglican theology. Now that we’ve arrived in the season of the Incarnation this claim of our faith is on full display. As we heard in this morning’s collect, “God has poured upon us the new light of the Incarnate Word.” This light that has been kindled in our world is to be our guiding light. Christmas is so much more than a day, it is the claim that God has come to us to be the Light of the world.
