Have you ever wondered what the twelve days of Christmas are about?
This year we decided to take time off every day to ponder each of them.
If you feel like Christmas has come faster than expected, and you have not even gotten around to starting your Advent wreath yet; if you feel like Christmas does not really reach you anymore in the midst of tragic news and the buzz to get things done before the end of the year; if your heart is heavy and burdened and rather offended by Christmas Schmalz, we would like to invite you to a dwelling place, right where you are.
We invite you to walk together towards the heart of the 12 days of Christmas, to take a break from the hustle and bustle, to breathe, and to wonder, guided and sustained by wise women and men, who lead us along.
We will start with Mary's pondering on the Divine in her heart, and sustained by poems and stories will walk toward the threshold where the old and new year meet. We will then guide you into some end of year reflections and spiritual practices. From there we walk together towards the light of Epiphany.
You are invited to take some time every day to walk through our virtual Christmas door to find some poetry, reflections, images, and practices to lead you through the 12 days of Christmas. You can visit our blog daily or just subscribe to receive the daily reflection right in your inbox each of the twelve days.
However you choose we welcome you on this journey. We are looking forward to journeying with you through this sacred time.
