Poem/Prayer for Advent 2

Poem/Prayer for Advent 2 by Thom Shuman
it's not rocket science, is it, Lord? making others feel welcome, i mean. if they show up (like John) barefoot, we can just slip off our shoes and get more comfortable; if they come (like John) speaking in a way we don't understand, all we have to do is listen; if they invite us (like John) to try a different way of doing things, we can jump into the water and see what it's like. it's not rocket science, is it, Lord? after all, you welcome us to your heart just as we are.
