A tiny baby born
Shepherds, kings and gifts
A Saviour
Silently arrived

John the Baptist
Leapt in the womb
Behold the lamb
Their eyes were blind

A pile of stones sitting
A woman caught in sin
Pardons given
The rocks un-thrown

Jesus in the temple
Tossing tables of goods
Anger rising
His house cleansed

The Cross of Calvary
Jesus nailed by love
Blood dripping
The price we couldn’t pay

The grave, bare and empty
He triumphed over sin
Resurrection Day
The glory of our Lord

Believers gathered together
All things in common
Sharing lives
The wine and bread

A kaleidoscope of cultures
Worshiping in Spirit
Burdens shared
An extra mile walked

A nation within nations
Passports stamped in blood
Contagious love
Full of grace and mercy

The Kingdom dwells within
Gift and fruits and life
Freely given
We must freely give

Gathered in His name
Two or more, He said
Hearts beating
Prayers like incense

A tiny baby born
He brought this all to pass
The Kingdom
The King and Lord of all

I like the different images you used for the Kingdom of God and the careful crafting of words to show them.
Emily Gibson03/22/09
You conveyed the Kingdom with concise and well chosen words. Very well done.

A celebration of the gospel in its essence.

I enjoyed this string of poetic pearls.

I would love to see you write the entire gospel account in such a concise way.

"A nation within nations

My favorite part! What a message, powerfully delivered.

I like these--even though the style is spare, almost haiku-like, each is complete in itself, and perfectly titled.
Rachel Rudd03/24/09
I liked the way you looped around to the beginning again. It all comes down to Him coming down. :) Very good message written in a simple beautiful style!

Great imagery. "passports stamped in blood".
Loved this one very much.
