Christmas is a holiday that comes with a cost

In this cinematic visualisation of RS Thomas’ poem, explore how the Son of God chose the mission of Christmas. With stirring visuals, the poem speaks of our world lost in brokenness and darkness, and the climax of Jesus' rescue which centred on a tree. Jesus knew that embracing the crib also meant embracing the cross - and still choose to say ‘let me go there’.
