Christmas is supposed to be a precious time of year spent with loved ones – dragging Christmas trees out of garden stores, Michael Bublé on repeat and pretending you don’t know who your secret Santa is. If you’ve seen any of my other Christmas videos, you know the score – the point is to hone in on the reason for the season, underline the 1st syllable of Christmas. 2015 has been a year that has seen so much terror and it makes you wonder, where does Christmas fit in to all of this? Well, if we dig a little deeper into the Nativity narrative, you’ll see four words which are fitting. In isolation, these words would be empty of meaning, perhaps even foolish or distasteful given the pain that surrounds us. But they’re not in isolation, these 4 words are spoken with the birth of a certain baby in mind. And that baby’s Jesus – and that changes everything.
