3rd Sunday in Advent

Luke 3:7-18

The Good News comes
and brings freedom
but to me?
Who have I been fooling
in a world filled with the screams of hunger
in a world filled with the screams of pain
in a world
I have helped to make
----the way it is
I feel uncomfortable with your message
I feel uncomfortable with the way it points
to me
I wanted only a feel good God
the Messiah who loves little children
and maybe that is why
I feel uncomfortable in this world
I helped to make
because the Messiah does
love little children
who choke on my greed!
Give me the strength to share
my two coats
----and food
and hear the Good News
of You Lord
