Advent Reflection 5: Always This

By Roger Ludwig

Always this seeing,
always this light—
faces, modest, beautiful—
not just-us-and-ours,
and more and more,
not white—
children, women, men,
the future on the way,
the past getting out of the way
of the rainbow mix of humanity,
the Great Commonwealth beyond
the poverty of bigotry,
the Circle of Belonging and Beloving
that excludes no one.
