Incarnation


Incarnation - God WITH us
not just an historic event
not just in a manger in Bethlehem
for, as momentous as that was
it is NOT enough
Not enough for a world
experiencing the darkness
that shrouds the world today
Not enough for a world experiencing 
economic recession, 
unemployment,
homelessness,
poverty, 
insecurity,
corruption,
oppression,
injustice
hopelessness.
Not enough for a world
constantly needing to see
and to feel
God with us.
God with us
in ways that make sense
of the world today.
God with us
in ways that bring light
and hope into today's darkness.
God with us
as startling
and as transformative
and as unthinkable
as it was 2000 years ago.
God with us
kicking and screaming
and helpless and vulnerable.
Incarnation - for today.
