Posted on December 29, 2022 The Work of Christmas

In the wake of the hectic Christmas season when priorities sometimes turn sideways, I offer up this poem from theologian Howard Thurman as a reminder of our charge going forward. I also invite you to join me in that work as I help train God’s people at Cape Town Baptist Seminary. Make a recurring donation and help me reach 100 percent of my funding goal. Thank you!

The Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled,

When the star in the sky is gone,

When the kings and princes are home,

 When the shepherds are back with their flock,

 The work of Christmas begins:

 To find the lost,

 To heal the broken,

 To feed the hungry,

 To release the prisoner,

 To rebuild the nations,

 To bring peace among others,

 To make music in the heart.
