At Christmas we want to reflect on the story of the Nativity and the Incarnation, yet we’re often too busy with the things to get done for holiday gatherings, work events, and before the end of the financial year. So since it’s the weekend, maybe you have more time to read and reflect, wonder and meditate on the mystery inherent in the promise of God becoming like us, so that we might become more like God.
This Advent Season you can read some pages written by the contemporary German Theologian Jürgen Moltmann on the ontology (how we understand the being, existence and relationships) of Jesus born of the virgin Mary in the manger. The PDF has some word definitions inserted into the reading, as well as some reflection questions after the relevant pages.
