ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the idea of God being incarnate. He recalls his experience of serving as a boy chorister and growing up with Ancient and Modern, the evening canticles, versicles and responses, and carols, as well as of working as curate at Saint Paul's Knightsbrige in Northamptonshire, England. He confesses about having a sense of the growing distance between adulthood and childhood, and seeing predicaments of displacement and homelessness and powerlessness when watching school Nativity.
