My College Graduation Invitation


We, the young and the old,
have in these days as did the children of old,
two choices facing us:
the New World Order,
with its guardians of violence and greed,
Babel with a new face,
or the Peaceable Kingdom,
the one brought to us by a tiny babe in a manger,
and with him the hope of real change,
in our lives,
a new heaven
and a new earth.

Now that’s what I call good news and cause for celebration.

Shall we dance?
Shall we sing?
Shall we laugh again?

With this graduation,
I reaffirm my choice to the Babe of Hope,
to the Prince of Peace,
and to the King of dictators, presidents, and kings.

Won’t you dance with me?
