Week 1                            Stay Awake

                               A Knock

This week, I too have heard Jesus at the door,


and the vibrations have tingled often in my chest,

and I have been aware, awake,

and I come to the door alive.

Whom do I see?

My neighbor is there, seeking missing mail;


Urban camper friends come, seeking

bus passes and warmth;

cold and lonely?

A young boy comes a calling,

seeking a small job to earn some bread;

ragged and lonely?

Christ is alive in my community,

as He was in Christmas past.

Christ is alive and He knocks on my door.

I am anxious now for a final Advent,

for all thing new, but today He lives at my door.
