Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Sunday, December 24, 2006


Advent worship, and it's echo:
preparation draped in purple.
Impatient souls magnify the Lord
awaiting strength
and mercy
and justice.

Then later, back again:
celebration now clothed in white.
Evergreen hope
in new candles
and old carols.

Advent Mary, swollen in expectation
replaced by new mother
and tiny miracle.
Strength shown
in chubby newborn fist.
Mercy come
through unforgiving labor
Justice lying
in undeserved straw.
