Following from the Gospel of Luke (2:1-14) of Midnight Mass, we reflect on what the word ‘glory’ means. It is based on the Greek word ‘doxa’ and the Hebrew word ‘kabod’ – which means weight/significance/substance. We experience a glimpse of the glory of God when we look up at the night sky. Exodus 33 tells the wonderful story of Moses asking to see the glory of God. We discover that God has shared his glory with us (Ps 8) but we substitute so many other things for the glory and honour that we were crowned with. Christmas gives us another chance to find the glory that God offers us. (8’21”)
