The Little Series: Christmas, Volume 3

 

The material contained in this booklet is primarily meant to deepen our work
as grownups with children. It does not focus on traditional ways we celebrate
in midwinter, but aims to help us in our search to penetrate the festival of
Christmas as such. The festival of birth and of incarnation contains within it all
riddles and secrets pertaining to human growth and development on earth. What
a relevant topic for us today: to ponder how the heavens open, how from God this
being descends into earthly matter and takes on human form in a physical body!
The days which commemorate the birth of Jesus (December 25) and Epiphany,
when Christ appears (January 6), enclose the twelve Holy Nights. This is the time
of year which demands that we be awake in our hearts and look ahead towards
what we are going to do in the future, giving us the unique opportunity to let the
light of Christmas shine more and more into the life of the whole year.
