The Advent season is nearly upon us. How do you begin your Advent preparations? Where do you start? What frames your experience of Advent? What practices and rituals do you find helpful as you wait expectantly to celebrate the coming of the Christ child? What have you done in the past that’s been especially meaningful? Are you open to exploring new ways to mark these four weeks? Perhaps you can
blend something new with some of what you’ve liked in your past practices.
I like to begin the Advent season with the question: What wants to be born in me now? When I reflect on that question, I’m always aware that birth entails darkness, waiting and quiet time. What are the gifts to be found in darkness and in waiting?
