I saw this over at The Resurgence Blog. These are Bono’s thoughts on Christmas.
“The idea that God, if there is a force of Logic and Love in the universe, that it would seek to explain itself is amazing enough. That it would seek to explain itself and describe itself by becoming a child born in straw poverty, in shit and straw . . . a child . . . I just thought: “Wow!” Just the poetry . . . Unknowable love, unknowable power, describes itself as the most vulnerable. There it was. I was sitting there, and it’s not that it hadn’t struck me before, but tears came streaming down my face, and I saw the genius of this, utter genius of picking a particular point in time and deciding to turn on this.”
I am glad that there is a force of Love and Logic in the universe, and that He did chose to come to earth in the form of a child. His name is Immanuel. Matthew 1:23….
“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
