reclaiming december // how to find your voice in these dark times

well, now we are here. deep inside our caves. it’s the 4th sunday in advent, the last sunday in advent, and it is very, very dark. the past three sundays have been marking our journey into the dark, and today we have reached the center. we are pretty much as far down and as deep as we are going to go. and now that we find ourselves in the very darkest, deepest part of our advent journey, the question is…Read More
