The good news of Christmas is that God has come to dwell among

us-come to the poor, the suffering, to those on the margins.  

A seismic event that signals that the old order has passed away. 

That a new reality has been established. That the current of history

has been reversed, and that everything will be forever changed. 

The powers of death, war, violence and oppression have been defeated:

The first have become last and the last have become first. 

What kind of seismic events have occurred in your life?  What were some life changing things that came out of that experience?

Knowing that God is the god of those on the margins, what response does that produce in you?

What are concrete ways that you can serve Jesus by serving the least of these?
