Will post on RiverRunning as soon as a i have a few more minutes. Was collecting thoughts about Advent and reading Jonny Baker where I found an advent affirmation of faith which caused me to think about what I would write as a christmas credo. Here's what came:
I believe logic notwithstanding I believe logic
notwithstanding that God became a baby I believe Mary protected the prenatal God in her womb and nursed the infant God at her breast I believe Joseph, like me, eventually caught on, but it took him a long time. I believe that the holy family were peasants, that the stable stank and so
did the shepherds I believe that that the political powers shook with fear and convulsed into violence and that they still do I believe these stories matter, believe that truth is deeper
than fact and has been throughout time.
