Lineage


Matthew 1:17
So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.

Slotted in there
A place to belong
Kith and kin established
But cutting a new mould
Refusing to conform
Impossible to peg or label
Needing no human credentials
or heritage to bring authenticity
But at home nonetheless
At home in every time and place
Welcoming the stranger
On the road with the refugee
Tagging along with the outcast
Standing out with the stigmatised
That's my boy!
The Son of God
The Son of Mary
Stepping out of that noble line
To stand with all of humanity
The Christ - born for us.
