Musical Jesus:MERRY CHRISTMAS!! #JustOneTouch!

This will be as brief as the hash tag-  I was listening to Kirk Franklin’s (very 90s!) Christmas CD often this Christmas season and I found my favorite was his rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful” – and the last bit really got me!

“Ye that are weary come, and heavy laden come
Ye that are weary come, and heavy laden come
Ye that are weary come, and heavy laden come

If you need a touch, come
Just one touch, come
If you need a touch,
If you need a touch,
Just one touch
Just one touch
oh one touch”

This Christmas season, if there’s anything I’ve learned ( and I’m always learning!) it’s the impact of just a SINGLE act of kindness, generosity , or otherwise what I’ve heard called “glimpse of resurrection power”. The weary world is waitin…desperate for this, and all it takes is one touch – one touch of forgiveness, one touch of solidarity, one touch of love, any little instance of a sliver of hope for a better world. Just one touch of God in the form of a child; Just a touch of the hem of His garment.
There’s so much more than I can even get at – but it’s good to meditate on, maybe start a new hashtag? Lawl! Anyways, here it is for listening pleasure:
