Christmas is loud, as the angels sing out and
Christmas is quiet with the gentle breeze of the fields
Christmas is bright as heavenly hosts shatter the night and
Christmas is dark, with only stars to light the way.
Christmas is children gathering around the Eucharist and
Christmas is the elderly being helped to the front by their children
Christmas is the organ and flutes, the trumpets and drum and
Christmas is the silence between the music holding it together.
Finally, in the silence,
Christmas is the words as each is served
Words rising above the silence,
Descending into each soul
The Body of Christ
The Bread of Heaven.
The Gift of God for the People of God.
