Have mercy on me, Mother Earth, according to your steadfast love and abundant benevolence. Wash each of us thoroughly while the dreamers awaken from their slumber. I know I have transgressed.

And now we wait, not for the birthing of the Gospel in each of us, yet communally as well. As the year comes to an end, we notice many of us are hurting, exhausted, feeling alone - not everyone for sure, but more than we may realize. Advent reminds us there is room for our ..read more
