Birds sing in the dark, before dawn breaks. Advent invites us into the same kind of experience of waiting. We are in a world full of God but it can feel very dark at times. Can we find some joy as we wait, even in difficult circumstances? Can we take hope from some awareness, how small at times, that God is with us, that his plan for us and for his creation is a good one and that we are part of it. Can we still sing in the dark - sad songs and glad songs - knowing that dawn is breaking?
Following the pattern of the Celtic Christians by starting Advent in mid November, we take the time to slow down to see God with us. We clear space to let hope and light surface in this cluttered, crazy world: God's light here with us, and more light and life to come.
