Telling the story




Donkeys, camels, shepherds,sheep
Wise men, inn keepers, angels, stars
All the pieces we've gathered together
to tell the story
It's a story that needs
little embellishment
Amazing as it is
But, somehow, we feel the need
to disguise the starkness,
to dress up the poverty
For the reality
is too much to handle
To see the Christ child born
among the poor
and the oppressed
hidden in the hovels
of today
demands that we confront the reality
that in 2000 years
little has changed.
Today's world needs
God with us
more than ever
And so we continue
wherever
however we can
to tell the story
of God born
among us today.
