Pastor’s Pondering – November 28, 2019

Lo, he comes

When we get our Christmas cards

Addressed and mailed,

And Lo, he comes

When Main Street

Is decorated

And lit at night

And Lo, he even comes

When WalMart stocks their shelves

With Christmas items.


But Lo he also comes

When the poor stand in line

For our leftovers

And Lo he also comes

In the dog days of summer

When we welcome a stranger

Into our shade.

Lo he comes, for sure

When there is no cheer,

No eggnog,

No lights nor snow,

But merely an extra step

Out of our way,

An open door,

One last dollar

Given to the poor.
