Searching for a glimpse of change,
seeking liberation from colonizing forces,
the magi journeyed,
crossing foreign lands and borders
with only a star as their guide.
The same glimmer of hope
that guided their way
calls to us today.
Through night skies and morning dew.
Through community and in silent meditation.
Through songs, ancient and new.
Through art and bodies and creation.
Through collectives of people who dare to break rules
in the direction of a better world.
It calls us
to come and share our resources equitably,
to come and delight in love enfleshed,
to come and join in the spirit of deliverance
birthed far from the centers of power.
At the birth-site of God,
the way is revealed.
– Rev. M Barclay, enfleshed
