Beacon of hope

Christmas – birth of Jesus

Beacon of hope

Amid the seemingly hopeless

Human condition


War, hatred

Lack of compassion

Crimes of abuse

God’s image

Filled with dignity



Humanity cries out

For relief


And yet

We’ve had our answer

In the person of Jesus

To show

We can do it, too




‘God with us’


Such other-centredness

Builds relationship

In a daily sense

Far from the harsh words

And withering stares

That can be endured

On the personal battlefield


So we need to remember

The timeless and timely wisdom

That we are in God’s presence

In you

In me

With us

Now and always
