Christ | Christmas | Communion | Fellowship With God | Incarnation

Several years ago my wife and I decided to try camping. On our way home from the American Baptist camp in the upper peninsula of Michigan we unpacked our limited camping gear at a camp ground and set up our first home away from home in the wilderness. After we finished our evening meal and prepared our pup tent we noticed that a campfire had been started nearby. We joined the folks gathering around the fire and spent an evening filled with singing, storytelling and family fun. We will always remember that occasion. When John wrote his gospel he told of the coming of Christ in terms every camper understands. He wrote, “. . . and the word became flesh and dwelt among us . . .” Dwelt among us can also be translated, “He pitched His tent next to our tent.” In modern terminology we would say, “He moved in next door.” Written by Ralph Beaty
