Christmas thoughts from Cranmer

Cranmer has a superb piece about the truth of Christmas and the limits of human politics which is well worth a read. Here is a taster:

Politicians win elections by promising heaven on earth – they will feed the starving, house the homeless, dispel the fear, and instil a hope as bright as day. Yet when the electorate realises that they are still in purgatory a decade later, another swathe of disaffected voters views the democratic process with cynicism, and declares a plague on both their houses. The government of man is in crisis, and the heart of man is bereft.

But this child, this Jesus, this god-man mystery – some day, the government shall be upon his shoulder.

Sorry, I’m linking to other people and not writing much myself – creative juices have dried up for Christmas.
