Luke 4:14-21

 All of the hopes

All of the dreams

from generation to generation

have come to this

moment in time

In life and in light

as the world of God is spoken

Christ’s ministry in this world


among a people

who saw only the child

who heard only the preconceived ideas

of what was to be

and who was to be


they heard the words of promise

(The Spirit of the Lord

is upon me

to bring good news to the poor)

and they


Rejected the one sent

to set free the oppressed

and cringed at the thought

that at last

the time has come

when the Lord will save his people
