Glorious and Loving God, thank you for the assurance of life everlasting with you in the company of your people in glory. The war is won, and you are the victor! May I rest in the assurance of your final victory and eternal life. In joy and wonder we greeted the new day. Now we entrust all that we have done or thought or spoken in it to you. May it help build your realm of peace. Grant us your rest this night. IN the blessed name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

On the Incarnation
The Second Person in God, the Son, became human Himself: was born into the world as an actual man—a real man of a particular height, with hair of a particular colour, speaking a particular language, weighing so many stone. The Eternal Being, who knows everything and who created the whole universe, became not only a man but (before that) a baby, and before that a foetus inside a Woman’s body. If you want to get the hang of it, think how you would like to become a slug or a crab.
