Shadows of Christmas

Advent is our Hope against the darkness,
Living into the expectation of Christ.
Who is the Light born to dispel shadows
From the hearts of the People of Advent.

At the center of His holy Nativity are
Shadows of pasts, Crucifixion, and Ascension
In dark of night, from the dark of the stable
Emmanuel, the Light was born at Christmas.

In the shadows of all our Christmases
We see shadows of the past behind us,
And live the present in the shadows of Hope.
In shadows of Hope, look to an eternal future.
