Amidst the joy of celebrating the coming of the Child at Christmas,
many of us are caught up in the bustle of holiday travels, shopping
sprees, and plans to serve those less fortunate.
Christmas came early this year, Lord
Hunched over his mop, backbone like knotted cord
A Christmas sermon.
The angel's message to the shepherds.
The spiritualities of solitude and community.
Waiting for the harvest of God's promise.
