Krista Tippett, this was fantastic! What a great thinker and writer you are. I have just been thinking this season about the triumphant music that comes with this season. The talk of the "king." I don't know. It occurred to me that all of the pomp and circumstance flies directly in the face of the inherent, devastatingly poignant, humility of Christmas. So I enjoyed this bit. Right there with you. You should write more often! (I was planning a long trip to see family recently. I bought a jump drive and downloaded about 25 of your shows--yes, the unedited ones--for the duration.) Keep up the great work.
