Because I am preaching through my blog these days, I listen to sermons and think what illustrations I would use, if it were me. Today I thought about "Christmas in the Trenches" and the singing soldiers on both sides.

The sermon
Offered trenches
The ones we dig
Between us
The ones which pile
And mounds
Of dirt.
Trenches seem
Just as bad
As walls
Or mounds.
Both offer obstacles
To climb over
Or under
Or through.
We occupy
Both sides
Of those trenches.
Stare into each others'
Like icons.
We are Jesus
For each other
If we look.
