Christmas

In a world where we are told to tighten our belts, endure the recession, brave the financial storm,

Here you are, God with us.

In a world where the gap between rich and poor is ever widening,

Here you are, God with us.

In a world where so many face a future empty of hope and full of despair,

Here you are, God with us.

 

In a world where so many are refugees, as you once were, separated from loved ones and from family by miles of impossible journey,

Here you are, God with us.

In a world where loneliness is commonplace, where the sace between individuals is ever widening,

Here you are, God with us.

In a world where we are taught to be dissatisfied with the present, when our satisfaction is always hiding around the next corner,

Here you are, God with us.

In a world where so many, including ourselves, have forgotten you, ignored you, turned our back upon you,

Here you are, God with us.

In the form of a baby in a feeding trough, promising to bring down the mighty from their thrones.

Here you are, God with us.
