This series will explore our expectations from the mystery of the manger because, as often as we pray for the kingdom to come, Christmas reminds us that another one is coming – indeed, it is here – and it is not what we expect.  It is His kingdom, alright, but the King and His Kingdom are only in this world, not of it, and they are gathering a people – call them, Christmas people – who expect and practice something else, something like Christmas.
