A Question of Fear … for the Christmas season, from Aotearoa

During these twelve days and nights of Christmastide, I celebrate by sharing some of the lovely writing which has been coming to me … and inviting more words. Thank you to Erice Fairbrother of Aotearoa for the call to us all that this season of the Incarnation make a difference in the lives we know, in the world we know. 

Birthing is near1293122737
And its a bloody affair
Coming to a Mary near you
What will you do?
What will you do?

Christmas is near
And its a costly affair
Coming to a town near you
What will you do?
What will you do?

Peoples are fleeing
And its a global affair
Coming to a town near you
What will you do?
What will you do?

There’s war and there’s peace
And its a question of fear
Coming from me and from you
What will we do?
What will we do?

Indeed, what will we do?

    Thank you Erice for reminding us of a Christmas question we often avoid. Yet the answer is in the text, given by the Shepherd’s Angel, and they modelled an active response.

    thank you, Rosalie for reminding us that we must go and see and then we must go and tell!
