The mystery of Bethlehem disarms us, for it reverses our expectations. It shows us that to look for God in our lives, we should look for the poverty of a stable, the simplicity of a manger. Where it is dark, cold, and lonely, poor and simple, there we can see the glimmer of glory, and hear the song of angels. There we can join the shepherds, kneeling in worship.
