For my friends
and for the non-friends
for the neighbours in vocation
          who toil in this Season
          who get me
this prayer: 
          enough energy and abundant
          enough grace and abundant
          enough rest and abundant
as yet again we serve in the Season
for people of faith—
and non-faith

for neighbours in location
          who toil in the Season
          to hold the commerce and the practice
          of christmas, small-C christmas
the hardship to bring a Season
somehow of Joy.
