Light in the darkness

Early winter’s morning
a single flame shines a little light.
It brings the whole room to life
shadows of angel chimes in the ceiling.
The contrast makes darkness visible.

Your light
in every living thing.

Lord, in your presence
our shortcomings are so apparent.
But you only long to draw us to yourself
to melt away our shame and confusion
in the warmth of your love.

Your love
in every living thing.

I am drawn at Advent to God
who chooses to come as a helpless baby
in contrast with power and force and law and fear.
Come, Prince of Peace, Morning Star.
Your Kingdom come.

Your truth
in all our hearts.
