Christmas Eve

Marlene Brubacher

We thought we knew You, Elohim—
burnt sacrifice;
the law supreme;
the temple, veiled;
the judgement, strong—
Tonight the manger proved us wrong.

Marlene Brubacher lives in the bush of northwestern ON; she loves Jesus, singing, Eastern Europe, white chocolate, the richness of friends, and the magic of words.
