Walk in Hope card

Glory Card
A babe in swaddling clothes secure
in a borrowed manger?Glory! Messiah!
Words loom large over a little child,
as Jerusalem over Bethlehem.
Starlights twinkle as angels sing
to shepherds, outcasts and the poor:
Go! See the babe! Tell the others!
Can we be wrapped secure
simply in the love of Our God?
Glory! Salvation! Pain and loss loom large over a world Lent to our care.
Tree lights pierce to hope sprung from earth the Child Messiah - The Risen One The Christ is borne in us.
Who will hear? Who will see? Who will tell? In You may the Christ shine forth
and be raised - blessing others
this Christmas and beyond!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

The road from Nazareth to Bethlehem is long, winding and dangerous
Mary and Joseph made a decision
walking in a hope with expectation
of a promise to be fulfilled
that sustained them through 
the disquieting sounds of night
and the fears of unfamiliar places.

May you find friendly caravans 
         on the roads you travel
              and find within the Christ 
       to bring you peace amidst
              the disquieting sounds of our times
        that you too may walk in hope
                  and expectation. 
For The Christ is among us!
Shepherd card right.

Come and see! God invites
and though we may be
the most unlikely of guests.
the gift of God’s welcome
comes unexpected in the
night as the Messiah in a
manger. May Christ surprise
you amidst the uncertainty of
now .... Merry Christmas and
a Peace-filled New Year!

inside card
Something new has come
Can you not perceive it?

Once born in a manger, 
Now borne in the hollow of our heart.
The Christ vulnerable as a babe yet full
Of the promise — God will what we cannot.

Pay attention to the stranger, Believe in the star. 
When all else fails— have hope. 
God can!

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
A birth unto HOPE . . .
