From the artist:
"There are so many beautiful details tucked into the Christmas story—Mary swaddling her baby, the shepherds’ surprise, that little town of Bethlehem. It is easy to get caught up in all of those perfect details, and I think we should! However, as much as I love these details, I also love looking at the story with a big-picture lens.
From a big-picture perspective, I think the whole of the Christmas story can be summarized in just one phrase from this text: “Good news of great joy for all people” (Luke 2: 10).
In a day and age where thousands of refugees die a year, Nazis march in our streets, and racial tensions run deep, this promise—that the birth of Jesus is good news for all, and is good news—is a promise saturated in the gospel message.
In this drawing, I included an abstract star in the top corner of the page—a star whose light cannot be contained. This star reminds us of the star that guided the shepherds and wisemen to Jesus, as well as the ways in which Jesus is our light—particularly in the face of suffering. The repetitive circles symbolize that Jesus came for all—for God’s love and mercy are all-encompassing, covering all of creation and unifying us as family. What better news could there possibly be? Great joy, indeed."
