We've heard the story so many times that we almost forget that the impossible became possible became improbable became probable and actually occurred there in Bethlehem.  For nothing will be impossible with God.  Of course, God becoming human sounds to us impossible.  The greatness of God  is that God sets aside the greatness and the power in order to empty himself, to become a vulnerable child, and then, finally, through that child will redeem the world.

And so, then there is us, in our everyday lives - how many impossible things do we face.  Do we emphasize the impossibility, or do we step up and live as if, just maybe, the impossible may become possible, may become improbable, may become probable and may actually happen!?

Nothing will be impossible with God, and God makes this abundantly clear through the Feast of the Incarnation.

May we live and move and breathe with the deep understanding that God makes all things possible.

~The Rev. Peter M. Carey
