God in the Midst


God in the Midst

In the somewhat
frenzied aspects of
the season,
and wars and
rumours of wars
and pestilence and
hope and despair
and engaging
the powers
I keep a supporting
image of God
coming to us
as individuals,
or stepping into the
midst of conflict,
holding out a
swaddled infant
to us and saying
"Here, hold this
for me,
will you?"


~Cam Watts, pastor, Aylmer Baptist Church in Aylmer, Ontario.
Taken from Baptist Peacemaker, Vol. 27 No. 4, pg 1

This lovely poem was borrowed from my friend Greg's blog. Sounds to me like something Frank would have written.
