The Coming

Christmas is a holiday that comes with a cost

In this cinematic visualisation of RS Thomas’ poem, Speak Life explores how the Son of God volunteered for the mission of Christmas. Alongside these engaging visuals, the poem speaks of our world lost in brokenness and darkness, and the climax of Jesus’ rescue which centred on a tree. Jesus knew that embracing the crib also meant embracing the cross – and still choose to say ‘let me go there’.
