When we’re sick, we’d do anything for a guaranteed miracle that will cure us. We feel the same desire when our world isn’t well and our lives seem like a mess. This is, in part, the reason that we cling to the Christmas promise of a savior who is born – our guaranteed miracle.
But maybe this idea of a miracle isn’t exactly what we receive on Christmas. Perhaps the miracle we do receive is bit more ordinary than we’d expect.
