“After a hard year – and the hardness of my year is nothing compared to many – i think i’d rework the traditional themes of advent, and instead use vulnerability, courage, fear and desperation. they seem the four ‘human’ poses in the biblical story of the nativity, and i think they’re the four most human responses to life – they’re at the core of our being, but we don’t know how to live with them. it’s into that space that the divine is born – naming the space, and opening it up, might let the divine do what the divine can.”

I don’t really “do” Advent right now but I love this idea.
