We often find ourselves at times in the dark —
good or evil or in between,
of our own or another’s making.
Our work is to name the darkness for what it is
and to find what it asks of us . . . and to enfold us
as we wait for the darkness to teach us what we need to know.
In these advent days of darkness and waiting, it may indeed seem that God‘s face is hidden from our sight. But the sacred presence is there, breathing in the shadows.
“Night Visions” by Jan L. Richardson
In this strange season when we are suspended between realization and expectation, may we be found honest about darkness, more perceptive of the light” Jack Boozer
