A Day in the Life

What does it mean for the Divine to become Human? Would the human in question then be perfect in every way? And what does it even mean to be perfect? A well-known Christmas carol claims that the baby Jesus didn’t even cry. Really? That would be a perfect baby indeed, but it wouldn’t be a human…

I must confess, the thing I was most excited about when writing this play was the chance to portray Jesus as a child! However, as it turned out, I wimped out a bit: my two year old Jesus, though enthusiastic about talking, is not very articulate yet. (He’s clearly one of those children whose verbal…
