Christ, eternal, omniscient, creator, beyond time, source of wisdom and beyond petty claims of influence...in very nature God, slips into reverse and walks back past us- away from Kingship, away from power, away from influence, away from wisdom...towards infancy.
Calmly stepping into the body of a tiny child.

And even as this baby grows, figuring out how to control the body he himself designed, he still walks the other way, realising that life cannot be found in the struggle for permanence, but in giving it up.
