advent moment

God's astounding
and radical intervention
in our human history
cannot be contained in the tame
and timid
displays of Christmas lights
catchy slogans
or the exchange of gifts

advent confronts us once again
with God’s unparalleled effort
to communicate the message
that all humankind is embraced
and held close
by a God of love

Jesus Christ has come
is present with us
and will come again
in final victory
when all darkness
and evil will be no more
