When the Christ child was born,
the story tells us that
the wisest philosophers
the dirtiest farmworkers
the single mother
and the faithful father
all gathered around him.
They found the place where heaven touched earth.
They found the place where God took a human shape.
They found the place which they had been looking for.
Just for a moment…
