ExtraOrdinary: The First Christmas

ExtraOrdinary: The First Christmas

What the innkeeper
turned away
he could not forestall.
Camels gawked
as earthbound Frost
kindled Heaven’s Fire
and Christ slipped into time
in a Bethlehem stall.

Great is the mystery of godliness:
  God was manifested in the flesh,
  Justified in the Spirit,
  Seen by angels,
  Preached among the Gentiles,
  Believed on in the world,
  Received up in glory.
