The Story of Mankind


Is this not the story of all mankind –

That cultural icons are born in stables
That a child’s birth is attended by angels
That every Mother treasures those special moments
That every human is betrayed
That all will suffer and all will die?


Where is God? Where indeed.

He is deep within the story –
in the stable
in the glory
in the precious
in the pain
in the joy
in the grief.

Be still. Stop talking. Be quiet.

Know Him.

He is and She is, and they both remain
