By Kenneth Adams from Eastbourne, who says, “Use this poem for a time of quiet reflection, to ‘be still and know that he is God’, that he is our Father and that he loves us.”
On a dark silent night, where the stars shone so bright
and a chorus of angels did sing, of a peace, love and joy
of a new baby boy, every bell in the heavens did ring.
A reflection at the empty tomb
“Do not hold onto me, for I have not yet returned to the Father”.
I have read Jesus saying this to his friend Mary by the empty tomb many times and it’s easy to keep reading John’s Gospel without considering it. I can often find myself wishing, “If only Jesus was here now”.
