Photo of the Day: Creche, St. John’s, Bergenfield NJ

I was driving around this afternoon, heading from one late-Christmas store purchase to another, when my eye was caught by the display you see here. This crèche scene was facing Washington Avenue, outside St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, in Bergenfield, not far from where I live in Bergen County, NJ.

The sight pulled me up short, reminding me that this time of year should not be about the purchases but about a baby—but not just any baby—brought into a very dark world to light it with love, and to reunite the worlds of man and nature into a harmonious whole.
