Evensong – Wednesday, December 11, 2019

The season of Advent is upon us, the space to be still … prepare … wait. We add the lighting of the third candle, Water, to those of Wind and Fire. Let there be a season when holiness is heard, and the splendor of living is revealed. ~Rebecca Parker~ Deep peace of the running wave to you, Of water flowing, Rising and falling, Sometimes advancing, sometimes receding.

Evensong ~ May 8, 2019

Evensong ~ The Season of Easter ~ Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front by Wendell Berry   Love the quick profit, the annual raise, vacation with pay. Want more of everything ready-made. Be afraid to know your neighbors and to die. And you will have a window in your head. Not even your future will be a mystery any more.
