Everyone

December 9, 2017

The angel announces that what is brought that night is “good news of great joy for everyone.” We all love good news and crave great joy.  That’s not the difficult part.  Where the challenge lies is in the declaration that it is for “everyone.”  We tend to get possessive of this great good news. But the words of the angel cause us to question if, whatever Christmas is, is it really for everyone?
