For philosophers, life is full of coincidences. But for us Christians, life is providential. While the philosopher talks of coincidence because of chance, we Christians talk about providence because we believe there is a God in charge of our lives and human history.
What is more evident than God's in-breaking into human history in Jesus Christ? Christmas offered the opportunity to welcome God among us and into our history: human history is being divinized because Immanuel became historical, the highest act of God's providential love.
