Babe in a manger
a wooden cross
awaits you

the followers,
Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John—
weaknesses revealed
--John Daleiden, Avondale, AZ
~***~

listen—
hear their stories . . .
read their words . . .
--John Daleiden, Avondale, AZ

words from Luke’s Gospel --
lights from the Christmas tree
and shards of sunlight
--gillena cox; TT

paranderos
belting out their songs:
birth of a king
--Keith Simmonds; TT
~***~

The songs in our hearts tell us about peace!
