 Now the Real Work of Christmas Begins

 Art by He Qi

Cards have been mailed, gifts have been given.  The tree and decorations have been put away; the wrapping paper stored.   The hustle and bustle we experience as we prepare for Christmas has quieted. The poem below, by Civil Rights leader Howard Thurman, reminds us why we stand on the side of love throughout the year.

The Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled
When the star in the sky is gone
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost
To heal the broken
To feed the hungry
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers, 
To make music in the heart.
