Important Stuff

“This is the celebration of the Incarnation, when the eternal Logos of God took on a material body, which He still has.  Do not, therefore, join in with the general lamentations about ‘materialism.’ This is a celebration of God taking on a material body. It is therefore a holiday that should focus on stuff. By stuff, I mean ribbons, decorations, fudge, wreaths, cider, presents, feasting, toasts, shopping with joy, putting up a tree, sending cards, leaning a Christmas piece on the piano, and more fudge” (God Rest Ye Merry, pp. 124-125).

“This is the celebration of the Incarnation, when the eternal Logos of God took on a material body, which He still has. ”

Appreciated. Been reading through the CS Lewis Space Trilogy and this point is emphasized, though indirectly, so very much. Its truly amazing. The eternal Logos of God took on a material body. You just sold a book Mr Wilson… ordering momentarily.
