second week in advent: listen
The second week in Advent is a time when we are called to consider God’s word, both as a source of challenge and as a source of comfort.
God speaks in as many ways and through as many ways as we will let him, I’ve often thought. Through the sound of the wind, gentle or rough, and the sound of waters, likewise at times quiet and at times crashing. In the written word, through he voices of stranger and of friends. In the quiet of the heart. And of course, through music.
The work of winter draws in, this second week of Advent. Part of that work is to listen.
