We’ll be quiet here on AoS this next week so we can enjoy Christmas with our families. Next week, we’ll share, as always, our popular reflection questions for a New Year’s Eve…
In the meantime, here are a few classics poems and a short story we’ve shared this week in years past:
- Poem: Christmas Bells, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
- Poem: Poem: First Coming, by Madeleine L’Engle
- Short Story: The Gift of the Magi, by O. Henry
And here’s a new one:
By Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and Angels gave the sign.
Worship we the Godhead,
Love Incarnate, Love Divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
But wherewith for sacred sign?
Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
Happy reading, and we’ll see you next week!
