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
