Have Yourself a Peace and Justice Christmas!

This comes from Sojourners and is sung to the tune of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.   Jim Wallis, the founder of Sojourners, embodies the true words and life of Christ.  

I know that not everyone is aligned with the celebration of Christmas, but holidays at this time honor the return of the light, and Jesus brought forth and represents a beautiful message that has not deserved to be so distorted and maligned.   If this strikes you, sing a little Christmas song or write your own Holiday carol.  That would be fun too!!

Have Yourself a Peace and Justice Christmas

Have yourself a peace and justice Christmas,
Set your heart a-right.
Flee the malls and focus on Christ’s guiding light.

Have yourself a peace and justice Christmas,
Give your time a way.
Share God’s love, And serve “the least of these” today.

Here we are, as we pray for peace,
We’ll live simply and give more.
We care for those far and near to us,
Which brings cheer to us, once more.

God brings down
The haughty from high places,
And lifts up the low.
God cares for the hungry and the humble, so –
Forget the stress and let the peace and justice flow!
