Cold and crisp air….warm sun’s glow….crunchy snow beneath our feet….and the sight of “swans a-swimming”. These are a few of the advent blessings we experienced this morning on our prayer walk at Walden Pond. We’ll meet again in the new year on Monday, January 2nd at 9:30am. Newcomers are always welcome!
The Risk of Birth, An Advent Poem by Madeleine L’Engle (1973)
With the earth betrayed by war & hate
And a comet slashing the sky to warn
That time runs out & the sun burns late.
That was no time for a child to be born,
In a land in the crushing grip of Rome;
Honour & truth were trampled by scorn-
Yet here did the Saviour make his home.
