Advent: Week Five – Christmas

Light.
So bright, it brings fright.
Not fright from the night, but fright from mysterious new sight.

Not understood, and never seen before – but impossible to ignore.
Though some will.
New waves have crashed the shore, and the scenery has changed for – ever.

The Word, so powerful it once created all things, all beings.
Light from dark, order from chaos, and something from nothing.

The Word, so powerful it declared over all things created “It is good”
And it was.

The Word.
Became flesh.
Dwelt among us.

All that we’ve seen or heard or lived or experienced before,
has only been a shadow of this wave on this shore.

This grace. This truth.

Known since our youth, but finally known.
And now that we’ve grown, we are children.

Welcoming Jesus.

“The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God.

And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.(John testified to him and cried out, ‘This was he of whom I said, “He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.” ’) From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart,
who has made him known.” John 1:9-18
