Poems of God in humanity

This collection is at present open-ended and has not been published in print form. 

Many of the poems I've written since the Millenium have been about what it means when we talk about God in humanity. The title poem Incarnate is my latest dart thrown at the target of a coherent telling of the Christian story.

The rest of the collection is formed into a sequence reflecting birth, life, death and what may come after. Many pieces were for specific events or commissions, so it includes another tranch of Christmas carol service poems.
