This week we celebrate the First Week of Advent in 2020. The Christian spiritual tradition is an important to UU origins and remains an important source of wisdom today.
Light the Candle of Hope
When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the hear
Our theme for the month of February is Resilience. We will be posting about it and incorporating it into our services.
“[Resilience] is to watch a gathering darkness until all light is swallowed up completely without the power to interfere or bring a halt. Then in that darkness, to continue one’s journey with one’s footsteps guided by the illumination of remembered radiance.” – Howard Thurman
Here is a song to get us started:
Howard Thurman wrote a meditation called The Inescapable Divine.
May we remember in our times of waiting and worry that all will be well. May faith guide us as we move down our paths.
