Visits from angels
enormous danger and enormous hope;
Christmas is exciting
whether we’re hearing about it
for the first time or the hundred and first.
As our imaginations take us
to see the baby
born with no shelter
and put into a feeding trough to sleep
we remember God sent Jesus into the world
to be a light for people in darkness.
People who are hungry,
people who are cold,
people who are lost;
people in danger,
people in pain,
people in need;
people who have lost their way
people who have never had a way to lose.
people with nobody to love them,
people with nobody to love;
May Jesus help all of us
today and every day.
