And imagined a savior.
We imagined power.
One like the world but stronger and on our side.
We imagined a king on a white horse wielding a sword.
We got a baby born in a stable among the livestock.
We imagined the work done for us through the destruction of our enemies.
We receive a baby who will teach us our calling to seek reconciliation and to love expansively.
Praise be to God for the unexpected babe of Bethlehem.
Praise to the wisdom of love. Amen!
