Coming to Light: Winter Solstice Celebration

Winter Solstice Celebration: Coming to Light, Being Seen and Known

Like Bartimaeus, each of us has a prayer. His prayer was, “Lord, I want to see.” What is your prayer this winter’s night?

You can download a copy of the Winter Solstice Litany here.

We stand on the threshold of light. Though we struggle and stagger in the dark, seeking the light, our eyes adjust, and in the shadows, images are revealed. With so many in our world stumbling in the dark, feeling invisible, being seen and known by God means we are visible. Each person counts. Each one matters.

We gather to wait in the darkness to see what might come to light. What hope might emerge?

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike for you.
–Psalm 139

Our gathering this evening will include a meditative walk to the Reconciliation Labyrinth with luminaries to light the way.
