Peace on Earth


“The Christmas Spirit”

by Ann Weems

The Christmas Spirit

is that hope

 which tenaciously clings

  to the hearts of the faithful

and announces

in the face

       of any Herod the world can produce

 and all the inn doors slammed in our face

 and all the dark nights of our souls

that with God

 all things still are possible.

that even now,

unto us

 a Child is born!
