the Word became flesh

I have been trying to pause, peel away my thirty years of Christian upbringing, strip myself of my identity, and just objectively consider that statement: “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

Mind-boggling.

There is nothing normal about God deciding to slip into human flesh.

What a revolutionary idea.  A brilliant, heartbreaking, down-and-dirty choice.  Christianity is so mysterious, so fascinating, so raw.

I am in this for good.
