Vance's Tip of the Week
December 24th, 2015
A baby? Why a small child when the culture needs a king? This wasn’t what the people of Israel were waiting for 2000 years ago and yet God can start a revolution from the feeblest of things. He can change the course of history with a whisper rather than a shout.
The story of Christmas has continued to be a mystery to those who attempt to complicate its simplicity. It’s much like those who can’t accept intregative wellness as the body heals itself because there must be something more complicated.
The gift of Christmas and the gift of Nikken are very similar. Both are complex and yet both are so simple. Both have the potential to transform lives and both can be overlooked in an instant. My prayer on this Christmas Eve is that we can see both in their simplicity and complexity at the same time. After all, the real joy of Christmas and Nikken is not when we figure them all out, but when we get to share them with others and let them make a decision for themselves.
