"Revelation" (Advent and Christmas 2011)
It's commonplace today to hear someone say something like, "Well I believe in a God, but God is way to big for our limited human minds to actually know anything about." Is that true? As finite human beings, are we incapable of having any true insight into an infinite God? The Scriptures seem to suggest that while God may be to big for us humans to fully grasp or even to discover on our known, he does make himself know to us. And he does so in a variety of ways. We call this "Revelation." Revelation isn't just a scary book at the end of the Bible; it's the gift of relationship that God has offered to us. That is the gift we see most clearly in Jesus, and the gift we celebrate during the season of Advent.
