Merry Christmas (…why so dark?)

By Ken Rindeikis

Merry Christmas

The lights are getting harder and harder to find,

the churches outside remain so dark.

It’s supposed to be the time set aside

we used to circle on our calendars and mark.

Is it because we heard Christmas

had its roots in some pagan ways?

That we allow the world to take away

this time from us to lift up our Lord’s name in praise?

Like a person who was lost

and has become one who Christ reached out to save,

do we forget what Christmas is now,

or just bury it and throw it in the grave?

The world is seeking a Hope

and looking for what is right.

This is our moment…..we should shout it out loud

and decorate our churches so bright.
