The Grace of God Appeared

At Upper Room, we’re developing a tradition of sharing God’s Word through poetry instead of sermons on special holidays. (For a recent example, see Mike’s poem from this year’s Christ the King Sunday.)  Since it’s my turn to preach for Christmas Eve tonight, I’m following suit and sharing a poem which I wrote this week based on the lectionary texts for tonight: Isaiah 9:2-7, Psalm 96, Titus 2:11-14, and Luke 2:1-20. The title and theme of the poem come from Titus 2:11, “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.” In order to preserve the formatting, I’m sharing the poem here in a PDF: “The Grace of God Appeared“.

Merry Christmas!
