The process of creating my final Advent sermon this season has inspired me to sing – sing badly and happily all those Christmas songs I generally cringe at from a theological perspective. Always the contradiction! Here is a bit of what has emerged from that sermon.
May Christmas bless you with the depths of connection to All That Is.
Sing a New Song!
Like Mary sang anew
the old, old hymn of Hannah
Like Isaiah drew new depths
from Moses’ song of salvation
Like this voice gives new voice
to cherished carols, sacred carols,
and ready to gestate
her next wonder.
(Mary's song - Luke 1; Hannah's song - 1 Samuel 2; Isaiah's song - Isaiah 12; Moses' song - Exodus 15)
