It, defies logic, but, I believe.
I believe the mystery of Advent is new creation.
I believe in the Spirit of God, as in the beginning,
hovered over a poor marginalized girl on the fringe of society.
I believe in her vulnerability, openness and willingness,
the Spirit impregnated her with the presence of God.
I believe the same Word as in the beginning became flesh.
I believe for a time humanity nurtured God.
I believe as in the beginning the Word spoke creation into existence,
and from the womb of humanity, the Word made flesh speaks a new creation.
I believe now through God the Father, and Son the Word...the Spirit hovers,
speaking, ready to bring the new creation into being.
God with us, God within us,
building a new creation.
