A Merry Feminist Christmas, part three

A Merry Feminist Christmas, part three December 24, 2014

I first shared this post in December 2012 … here it is again for your Christmas enjoyment:

My friend Jann Aldredge-Clanton is the author of Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians, and I am taking these days surrounding Christmas to share some of her beautiful work, which features the beautiful images of others.

Today, “Welcome Our Sister-Brother Creator” (to the tune of “Greensleeves”/”What Child Is This?”) which she describes as follows:

Recording artist Shannon Kincaid sings “Welcome Our Sister-Brother Creator,” with pictures from various artists, to the tune of “Greensleeves.” This song envisions the creation of a world of peace, justice, kindness, freedom, healing, hope, and celebration of diverse gifts.

Some lyrics:
Come, let us join our Sister Creator,
birthing a new world more than we know.
With Her revealing all of our fullness,
we create healing wherever we go.
Come, let us join our Brother Creator,
bringing forth freedom for every race.
All of earth’s colors dancing together,
celebrate beauty in every face.
Welcome our Sister-Brother Creator
into our spirits’ life-giving wombs.
Glad expectation grows from our labor
for new creation’s glorious blooms.
