The choir has been practicing a special anthem for Christmas which is called The Beautiful Impossible—what a great two word description of the birth of Jesus as the Son of God—The Beautiful Impossible! There is one verse in particular I like:
“Into our silence, God’s music resounds.
Into our shadows, a star reaches out.
To the mangers of our empty hearts,
God sends a Savior to give life a start!”
The phrase that touches me is “to the mangers of our empty hearts.” It is a wonderful metaphor to picture our heart as a manger for the baby Christ.
