The Witness
Rev. Karin Kennedy Hejmanowski

An infant in a manger is as vulnerable as we get. What an infant needs is not theological debate but nurturing. The same is true of all the good words seeded in our souls that cry out to become embodied in this broken world. If these vulnerable but powerful parts of ourselves are to find the courage to take on flesh—to suffer yet survive and thrive, transforming our lives along with the life of the world—they need the shelter of unconditional love.
—Parker J. Palmer, From “The Risk of Incarnation—A Christmas Mediation,”

Note that the prelude begins at approximately 9:38.
