CHRISTMAS REFLECTION

REFLECTION FOR CHRISTMAS

I have only a beckoning star to follow

Journeying God,

Pitch your tent with mine

So that I may not become deterred

By hardship, strangeness, doubt

Show me the movement I must make

Toward a wealth not dependent on possessions;

Toward a wisdom not based on books;

Toward a strength not bolstered by might;

Toward a God not confined to heaven;

But scandalously earthed, poor, unrecognised.

Help me find myself as I walk in others shoes.
