Incarnation: Some Assembly Required

Georges Rouault

Incarnation: Some Assembly Required

I open my door
to welcome all that You are
and
PUT everyone comes in

anxious
thoughtful
joyous
distraught
expectant
ANGRY
PUT (with compassion crushing
PUT blame baring
PUT vulnerability)
lost

God unassembled

I feel
Your need
to be
PUT us

Ademaro Bardelli 1934 Italy*

The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved into the neighbourhood.
– John 1:14 (The Message)
