    Wonderful poem, Barry; the words take you to the moment but then invoke a response and commitment; succinct, powerful, evocative and relevant, thanks from many, Blessed Christmas, George

      Thaniks, George. You are too kind. I hope others are encouraged as well. I have sent the verses to a number of pastors with the suggestion they use it in the Christmas newsletters or include it a Christmas service. I hope they do. BArry.

  2. Barry Chant says:

    George, feel free to use the poem. Just so that other people know where to get it from if they want a copy, be sure to include my name as the writer. Thanks, Barry.

I'd love to get your thoughts on this...
