Josh Griffin posted on Do You See What I See?

a poem written for their service last weekend.  It’s been posted on MySpace and is well worth a look, here’s a little sample:

Do you see what I see?

Or so the Christmas song goes, asking a question then not waiting for the answer.

Do you see what I see?

Lying in the middle of a manger – a bundled-up baby lying in hay, or so they say, and we already know exactly how the story goes – a tidy scene with shepherds and angels and Mary and mangers.

But do you see what I see?

How no one quite knew what to do with this tiny little baby born in Bethlehem. How he provoked anger and awe and confusion and questions. How this tiny little baby made wise men want to seek Him and King Herod want to kill Him, and angels to proclaim Him. How shepherds flocked to bow before Him and how Mary and Joseph sat and watched and wondered how this fragile child – born in afterbirth and umbilical cords, incapable of words, but wailing and feeding and sleeping in a feeding trough – could possibly be God in the flesh.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
