“Keeping Christ Incarnate:  The Stunning Implications of the Incarnation”

God didn’t come to earth in the flesh for just 33 years. Christ didn’t leave us when he ascended into heaven. We, the Christian community, continue the incarnation. We are the Body of Christ. We do not represent Christ, replace Christ, or become only his mystical body. We ARE the Body of Christ and we continue to give physical flesh to God. This has astonishing implications for how we pray, seek healing, look for guidance, understand religious experience, and for how we “bind and loose” our loved ones.  A look at the concept of the Incarnation and its astonishing implications.
