The Coming

A cinematic visualisation of RS Thomas’ poem that captures the cost of Christmas

Christmas is a holiday that comes with a cost. Speak Life explores RS Thomas’ poem in which we see the Son of God volunteer for the mission of Christmas. Alongside these engaging visuals, the poem speaks of the world in brokenness and darkness which centres on a tree. Jesus knew that embracing the crib, meant also embracing the cross and still choose to say ‘let me go there’.

Possible Discussion Questions
