Holiness as a doctrine is Good.
Holiness as an initial experience is Better.
Holiness lived out in daily-life is Best.

CHRIST OF CHRISTMAS CRUCIFIED (18th card)
Mary, the carpenter’s wife,
Has been delivered of a Man child.
She conceived and then bore,
Heaven’s Seed and remained undefiled.
She gave birth in a peasant “home”
Of linage Royal and old.
Bearing her reproach she thus gave,
Divinity a fine human mold.
He came, He loved, He cried,
He walked by the azure sea side.
He cared, He worked,
He sought those who had never been taught.
He touched, He scattered, He plead.
The Holy Scriptures He read.
He stood, He bore, He died.
The Christ of Christmas, crucified.
- eab, Dec. ’82
