Bethany Presbyterian Church

A More Light Congregation

Unto Us a Son Was Given

The year was the decade-maker, 1970-

Along a German street, head down,

Stomach empty,

Walked a young man totally alone.

“Who are you, young man?”

“I am Mudeer, I fled Pakistan to escape-

I was turned back from England and

I am afraid.”

“Come home with me.

You need have no fear.

Let us first get you something to eat.”

Unto us a son was given!

Later two grandchildren call us,

“God Parents.”

Mudeer is a Muslim, and I am a Christian

And in the universes somewhere

God is smiling.
