A PRINCE IS BORN THIS DAY.




Like Herod, we make assumptions;
Surely royalty has a certain air to it?
Certainly not the smell of manure!

Clear legal lineage is what's required;
Not the questionable marital status,
Of a young 'tween and an old man!

Though demanding pomp and high ceremony,
We instead get poor unwashed sheep herders?
We never recognize God...

Amen, Tim, amen. What will it take for us to recognize God?
