CHRISTMAS IN THE TIME OF COVID
At this point, we all know the drill.
Stay away. Keep your distance. Wait this out.
But God knows our tensions, our anxieties,
Our weakened immune systems.
God did not stay away
Nor keep a safe distance
Nor wait for a more receptive world to greet Him.
He came in the time of Occupation
“God with Us”
Even in our isolation
And worrisome coughs.
MARANATHA, Come Lord Jesus
And pitch Your tent with every grieving child
Every feverish grandparent
Every lonely person looking for Your face.
Comfort, give Comfort
To Your people, oh God.
And speak tenderly to us
That this year of misery has ended,
And we are found in your grace.
