New Beginnings01.05.2021.                       11th Day of Christmas

Messed up New Year’s Resolutions? Life too much of a mess to even make Resolutions? At he beginning of Creation, everything was a chaotic mess. Then The Spirit hovered over it and saw the potential, the possibilities!

Creation began and it was GOOD.

So it can be with each of us. Will you join me in prayer?


Ritual grounds us. It connects us to the familiar and to the Loving Spirit. In those moments when we are participating in ritual, we may become aware of the blessings, the surprises, the wonders and joys, the callings given to us.

I invite you to join me in the Ritual of Holy Communion Online.


I had to edit this live post because I tried to add music that I thought was in the public domain and wasn’t. I decided to edit the ending while I was at it because I kept knocking the candles over.

Shouldn’t I just skip posting it? I definitely considered it, but I couldn’t skip the proclamation that THE LIGHT BROUGHT LIFE AND THE DARKNESS COULD NOT EXTINGUISH THE LIGHT. (John 1)

No matter how we share The Light and The Life that we celebrate at Christ’s birth, we need to do our part of shining the hope and love and joy. Be a blessing! The gift of you is needed.


The AdventWord for today is MYSTERY. I relish being open to the wonder, the awe, the mystery of The Holy.
People from the beginning of time have worshiped according to their understanding of the Holy. Eventually people began to claim their mother goddess or father god as belonging to them, their nation. Wars were fought and people conquered in the name of their deity.
With Christ, came the message that not only was God One, but that this One Deity was for All People, and that victory was not through military might or oppression, but through Love.
