12/19/10 - NNHS Newsletter - Sussex Carol
(Fourth Sunday in Advent)
“The season of Advent means there is
something on the horizon the likes of which we
have never seen before… .What is possible is to not see it, to miss it, to turn just as it
brushes past you. And you begin to grasp what it was you missed, like Moses in the
cleft of the rock, watching God's [back] fade in the distance. So stay. Sit. Linger. Tarry.
Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder. There will be time enough for running. For rushing.
For worrying. For pushing. For now, stay. Wait. Something is on the horizon.”
- Jan L. Richardson, Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas
