heard the angels sing. (Luke 2.13-14)
A handful of outsiders
saw a heavenly sign. (Matthew 2.1-2)
A man near death
saw God's promises come true. (Luke 2.25-32)
An aged widow
long shut off from the world
heard the news with joy
and began to spread the word. (Luke 2.36-38)
The mighty, the influential, the arrogant, the proud
saw nothing whatsoever,
save strange rumours,
As the Master of the Universe
came among them.

'God has chosen
the foolish things of the world
to shame the wise ...
the weak things of the world
to shame the strong ...' (I Corinthians 1.27)
Wishing you this Christmas
grace in your weakness.

HE MAKES THE NATIONS PROVE
THE GLORIES OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
