New Year Reflection 2 

godwithusnativity-hi - CopyIt is not true that
that this world and its people
are doomed to die and be lost.
    This is true:
    God so loved the world
    that he gave his only begotten Son,
    that whosover believes in him,
    shall not perish but have everlasting life.

    This  is true:
    Unto us a child is born,
    and unto us a Son is given,
    and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
    Wonderful Consellor, Mighty God,
    the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

extract from a poem "This is True" by Allan Boesak
