The Mythic, Cosmic Christ at Christmas*

It wasn’t just baby Jesus who was born in the way
the story goes to fulfill prophecy.
The mythic, cosmic Christ was born that day
so he could live in me and thee.
and then each and every day
we would give birth to Jesus’ mercy, peace
and justice to all for eternity.

*idea from Matthew Fox paraphrasing Meister Eckhart
as stated in a meditation by Richard Rohr
