With war swrirling around the world, with divisiveness politically at home, with uncertainty, doubt and fear the order of the day, it may strike you as an unlikely time for God to wish us peace on earth and goodwill. But in Bethlehem of long ago, just as today, it is the worst of times. And it is at the worst of times that God comes to us, individually and as a people.
It is always the worst of times, but because God has come, our circumstances no longer have to control us. Because He has come to redeem us, or fears and doubts need no longer bind us. Because He has come we have at least the possibility of Peace and Goodwill.
