We clap hands and welcome the Peace of Christmas.
We beckon the good season to wait a while with us.
We, Baptist and Buddhist, Methodist and Muslim, say come.
Come and fill us and our world with your majesty.
We, the Jew and the Jainist, the Catholic and the Confucian, implore you to stay a while with us.
So we may learn by your shimmering light how to look beyond complexion and see community.
— Maya Angelou, from Amazing Peace
Wishing you all the happiest of holidays, my friends. Thank you for being you.
