20- What is Incarnation?

 

 

Christmas is the time of telling the story of Jesus being born in a manger. It is perhaps the most famous story about incarnation. But what is incarnation? Is incarnation a particular story like that of the birth of Jesus? Or is incarnation a much wider story that is being told in every person’s life? ┬áIn this post, I make a case that Incarnation is not a contest between the particular and the universal, but the marriage of the two. And if we grasp this, then perhaps the incarnation/Jesus story is already being told in every atom of the universe.
