There are so many other things Jesus did. If they were all written down, each of them, one by one, I can't imagine a world big enough to hold such a library of books. - John 21:25 (The Message)
'Haiku' is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.
Why not write your own - maybe about hope, peace, joy, love...
perhaps about your faith or your family and our Parkway UCC?
Christmas Haiku  by Roger Lynn
Advent comes again
time for watching and waiting
fill your days with hope
God is with us now
even in the darkest times
joy is our response
peace seems so fragile
in the midst of our fighting
but shalom endures
trusting God - we wait
knowing that love will find us
indeed, it is here!
God's gift at Christmas
Emmanuel - God with us
now and forever
Compassion is the key in Islam and Buddhism and Judaism and Christianity. They are profoundly similar. - Karen Armstrong
Holy One, from dawn to dusk, from light to dark and back around again, speak to us in ways we can understand and share with others. Amen.
