We are approaching the season when we celebrate the return of the Light that is born to humanity. The Light that gives hope in the midst of darkness, peace in the midst of war, and the ability to change and start over in each one of us.  This theme is reflected all around us: at the Winter Solstice, the darkest night of the year, the sun seems to stay still.  This moment of stillness marks the completion of the Earth’s annual inbreathing, beginning at midsummer.  Life in the northern hemisphere has withdrawn into the Earth: Nature seems dead and darkness has reached its greatest potency.

 But darkness can bring peace, and stillness calm; yet the pause between in-breath and out-breath is fleeting but filled with potential. In one brief moment  the creative new is born.  This is why we celebrate at this particular time the return of the Light, the cyclic renewal of humanity but also the renewal of our own soul.  We celebrate with each other in the light and warmth of good company, family and friends, thus strengthening the returning Light in each of us and gathering the courage to move forward into the unknown future, into the coming year.

 Merry Christmas!
