Bishop Eaton: From Cradle to Grave

Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton

In her December LivingLutheran column, Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton writes that “Emmanuel—God with us—came to us and comes to us precisely at the time when our need is greatest. … On Christmas, God has reversed the cradle-to-grave progression.

“Our lives are not a meaningless trudge from cradle to grave, but a joyful journey—true and lasting joy—from grave to cradle. All our brokenness and death meet life and healing and hope in the child in the manger. His cradle defeats the grave. We are loved. We are alive. Now we are free to greet this holy season.”
