How Do We Find You? A Christmas Reflection – 2016

How do we find You?

Amidst fa-la-la’s and merry tidings

Christmas cards and those inviting

us to do more, go more…

Keep up with the Jones’, Lord

 

How do we find You?

When nightly news talks terror

Contentious debates and human error

In war torn places, in a

Divided nation, Lord

 

How do we find You?

In a year of disappointing words

When loss underscores what we’ve heard

And we’ve said hard goodbyes

To people and places and time, Lord

 

How do we find You?

Wooden forms in the crèche

Holding space, help us confess

We do not always see you

Feel you, hear you, Lord

 

But You found us, and

More than 2000 years ago

You gave us Jesus so we know

Our vain searching is done

You’ve given your only son.

Thanks be to God for this indescribable gift.
