What is Jesus? He’s as human as you, and he’s as human as me. And he’s more. Jesus is fully alive. He lives the abundant life and invites us to share it. Jesus is God with us and Jesus is human. He promises to stay with us. Here is the hope of Christmas.
-Br. Luke Ditewig, SSJE
Hope is fueled by the presence of God in our lives. But hope is also fueled by the future of God in our lives: a small seed that perhaps we cannot even see right now, planted by God into the ground of our being.
