What is Christmas

What is Christmas
But the descent of God
Into a violent world
Where innocents are slaughtered
Because the ruling powers fear their rise.

What is Christmas
But God’s lament
Crying out to all creation,
“I have seen the affliction of my people;
I know their sorrow;
I have come down to deliver them;
I have come to raise them up
To a good land
Flowing with milk and honey;
That by my name they shall know me,
Immannuel.”
