The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-6)

A Stirring in the Stable
I hear your call from the stable,
From a baby in the manger straw.
It's a tender summons,
With an angels' chorus,
Beneath the brightest of stars.
Open my ears to your teaching:
To love the unlovable,
To defend the defenseless.
To forgive the unforgivable.
To share your Spirit,
To believe when doubt overwhelms,
Hoping when things seem hopeless.
Change my heart, Jesus! Your Kingdom comes this Christmas! Amen!
