Today we celebrate Jesus’ birth. Soon after the first Christmas, Jesus himself and his parents became refugees in Egypt, fleeing King Herod.

One of the most striking things about Jesus’ birth—in poverty and amidst suffering—are the parallels between his world and the world today where so many are still suffering. This year I’ve been reflecting on Jesus as a refugee.
