A meditation on prison and Christmas. Here are a few lines from Isaac’s column:
As members of our church gather for fellowship and prayer in prison, we receive the flow of God’s life through our hands. The love and friendship of God revealed at Christmas come to us again as the Spirit overshadows our circle of bodies in prison. As we pray, we find ourselves in Mary’s womb, being re-formed by the Holy Spirit, and awaiting the birth of new life in our midst, the advent of Christ’s body.
