A-Poem-a-Day Until Christmas
Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas!

It’s the Season of Lights…We delight in the glow
of Christmas and Hanukkah; the stories we know
of God’s awesome miracles, deliverance and Birth
to show His great Love for all people on Earth.
Alongside our manger there stands a menorah;
we sing Joy to the World and then dance the Hora,
ignite the nine lamps and hang a wreath on the door,
tell of brave Maccabees, the virgin birth and more.
We worship with believers, Gentiles and Jews,
we recite the Shema and share the Good News,
read Old Covenant prophesies from A to Z
like the Gospel revealed in Isaiah Fifty-three!
Our Messiah is Jesus; Yeshua, some say—
He’s the Light of the World; our great hope for today!
We praise Him, adore Him, we’re blessed to impart:
His fire burns brightly in our circumcised hearts!
We believe He was born to save us from sin,
that He died and was buried then rose up again.
By Blood He has saved us, our Atonement, He Is!
By His Resurrection, we’ll live for He Lives!
We are Olive Tree branches, Gentile and Jew—
united in Messiah…and all Born Anew!

I just want to let everyone know that the holiday program at The Ant last night was delightful! A good time was had by all. There was excellent poetry, beautiful music, delicious treats, and a fine open mic segment. Thanks to all who came and a great big thank you to Jim & Emily Gwyn for facilitating this event.
