Emmanuel again

Following from my thoughts yesterday I was reminded of these words from Bono that express things much more poetically (thanks Graham for posting and so reminding me of this)

‘It dawned on me for the first time, really. It had dawned on me before, but it really sank in: the Christmas story. The idea that God, if there is a force of Love and Logic in the universe, that it would seek to explain itself is amazing enough. That it would seek to explain and describe itself by becoming a child 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.’

The quote comes from Bono on Bono – a book which my eldest son very discerningly bought me a little while back.
