3 Incarnation - The Embodied Presence of the Great Spirit

In mainline Christian theology, the notion of Incarnation is reserved almost exclusively to the historical Jesus. However, it also carries a more foundational significance around the notion of embodiment, the God who creates through all the embodied expressions of creation from the universe down to the tiny bacteria. In this context Incarnation does not begin with Jesus, but with the creative Spirit, which in this presentation I explore through the indigenous concept of the Great Spirit.
