1Christmas, Yr. C January 2, 2022
Well, we are now in the 9th day of the 12 days of Christmastide.
And, Christmastide is a time when we tell the story of Immanuel… the story of
‘God with us’ (whose coming we awaited with song(*) at the end of the Mass on
the 4th Sun. of Advent… all 8 verses)
For me, Christmastide is a season for telling stories about the incarnate love of
God…. about God’s love experienced among us.
There are of course many stories we could tell, but here is one of those stories.
It’s called ‘Barrington Bunny’ and was written by a beloved friend of mine
….many, many years ago… as a Xmas sermon.
… Barrington Bunny…. (**)
(*) ‘O come, O come Emmanuel’, Hymn 56 [Hymnal, 1982]
(**) ‘BarringtonBunny’ was written by Martin K. Bell and is in the book The Way of the Wolf that is available in bookstores and online.
