The Risk and the Daring

May the risk
and the daring
the scandal
and the holiness
the surprise
and the destiny
the power
and the weakness
the poverty
and the richness
the humility
and the honor
of Jesus’ miraculous birth

be birthed miraculously in you

in your
hopes and fears
failures and success
friendships and solitude
work and rest

now as then
may He entrust something so precious
something so important
to such as you
may He break the power of the proper over you
may He instill His love and power and ancient truth and reality
in you
this day forward and on to forever!
