A Kind of Light: For Christmas Eve

A kind of light in the dark,
a kind of light so small
we may think it only weak
and insignificant, insufficient,
in a night beset by fear,
a world besieged by gloom

Yet a kind of light, a true,
of bright splendor descended
and bounded in frail flesh
to pulse a boundless love,
that we may awake, may arise,
to day, to realm, of glory suffused

Life and Death in Christ

We are too quick to speak of life in Christ without sufficient attention to death in Christ.
