All I want for Christmas God,
Peace on Earth, and no more guns,
and the end of the filibuster,
and every child fed.
All girls want is equity–
and all pregnant people want is easy and safe access to abortion
and childbirth, family leave and chidcare.
Jesus Christ, do you hear me?
All we want is equity, and Black Lives to Matter
and Native Land Returned
and Queer Families to be acknowledged and safe
and for all Bodies to be Affirmed.
All we want is for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
to include healthcare and shelter for every single person
and the humanity of one single person to never ever be debased.
All I want is for pronouns to be universal, and for people to not look at me weird if I refer to God as she or ze or they.
All I want is for everyone to understand that no human being is illegal,
and that disability porn is disgusting, and that any nation where people have to beg to get basic things is severely lacking.
Holy Spirit– you have heard me say this before, so you know.
All I want is a world where addiction is understood to be a disease,
mental illness care is not a shambles
and neither is blamed whenever some domestic terrorist incident happens.
All I want is a world where everyone who wants access to therapy can get it–
without barriers for free.
All I want is a place where politics are not politics but policies of care and where politicians are there to serve the people.
All I want is a world where mindless corporations are not favored and technology is first and foremost used to help one another.
God–why did you make my imagination so unlimited, when it seems that our capabilities are so limited?
How is it I can so easily imagine the Kingdom to come? I know its not really my job to bring it about, because I can’t, that’s your job.
Nor can I demand it, for it will come in its own time.
But wow Lord, whenever I imagine what can be, my mind just goes wild with the possibilities! Help me to see some of the fruit of the Spirit I pray!
Because, as you know, I want it all!
