Old Testament Advent Poem No. 9

The Key – Jeremiah 31:31-34

“For I will forgive their wickedness
    and will remember their sins no more.”

The door of the law,

is solid, large,

immovable and closed.

We lie lifeless

Xmas '[pems

Last Year’s Poems

in its shadow.

Holy, immovable,

divine expectations

bar entry

into God’s perfect presence.

Then,

in Bethlehem

a Key was born:

the door opener –

the barrier destroyer.

The manger child

came

to throw open wide

and prepare entry

for his adopted

brothers and sisters.

And the father

will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.
