Faith in the dark: Lenten meditations on the creed (4)



Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary

Who did not come wielding power. Who did not come to dominate or control. Who did not come in service to any agenda. But who was conceived. A human foetus in a human womb. Whose hands and feet and thumping heart took shape slowly in the watery dark, tiny fingers moving in the abyss. And was born. And came shrieking into the world of flesh, the naked crying joy of all the earth.

“’Pride’ is a song about Christ (‘One man betrayed with a kiss’) and Christ figures, those who are willing to risk all in the name of love.” (Greg Garrett, The Gospel According to U2)

“Pride (In the Name of Love)”
