The Fullness of Time by Timothy Haut
It was a miracle which came in the fullness of time, this birth we celebrate. And when shall our time be so full again, pregnant with waiting, holding within a new creature to stir the longing world? It seems so full, now, this time of ours almost ready to explode: we cannot carry the weight of it. We are a planet and a people carried by the tide of history to the precipice, ready to dump some of our fullness so that we may be healthy again, so that we may have space and silence, so that we may come with empty hands for the love, the miracle, the birth which is offered us. The star is shining this night, this new year, this tumultuous time. See it, just ahead! Shall we go? (Comments to Tim at Deep River, CT
